Teaching Presence in Relationship
is a training designed to prepare Mindfulness Based Program instructors to teach Interpersonal Mindfulness to MBSR and MBCT graduates. Based on the meditation practice of Insight Dialogue, the awareness, mental stability, and calmness associated with silent meditation are developed in practice with others. Participants experience greater freedom internally and interpersonally as they integrate meditative qualities directly into relationship.
The Interpersonal Mindfulness Program is offered as a follow-up to graduates of Mindfulness Based Programs. It was developed by Gregory Kramer and a group of senior teachers and is based on the meditation practice of Insight Dialogue. The program encourages ongoing work with interpersonal stress by cultivating mindfulness, mental stability and calmness in relational contact.
