2-Day Mindfulness Group work Workshop



Group work Workshop


Led by Adrian Karunavira

The teacher’s ability to create and maintain a rich exploratory learning container made safe through ground rules, boundaries, confidentiality and to respond to group development processes are big challenges to MBIs teachers. This two-day, experiential training will provide an opportunity to develop understanding, skill and confidence in the Group Work.

What to Expect

A non-residential program transformed into a retreat



We will explore how to bring this group dimension into all aspects of our mindfulness teaching – including the orientation and assessment process; guiding practices; leading inquiries; and facilitating exercises and group discussions. In doing this, we will learn how to be present and alive to the three dimensions in the group: that of myself as teacher; that of individual participant; and that of the group as a whole.

We will explore the different stages of the group – namely the forming, the holding, and the ending of the group – and how as group leaders we can best support the learning practice of our participants in this group context.

This training is taught in a retreat format, which means there is a great deal of mindfulness practice embedded in the training. The wonderful venue very much facilitates this format; we will will meet, eat and be housed in a relatively secluded area.

Key learning objectives:

  • to explore ways of leading, teaching and holding the process of mindfulness-based groups that enables the rich learning potential within the group to be realised by our course participants;
  • to find ways of resolving some of the common challenges when leading groups, including managing: a dominating participant; a persistent late comer; someone who is openly sceptical; and/or a participant who says very little;
  • to consider the different approaches involved with teaching very different sized groups.
