Inquiry Essentials 20–306–01
Inquiry is the practice of asking a question to investigate our experience. It has been referred to as the heart of MBCT because it is such an essential part of this modality and is vital for those wishing to facilitate MBCT groups. It is also the most difficult practice to learn.
Participants Will Learn
• How to examine the principles and practices of mindful inquiry as they pertain to “therapeutic mindfulness”
• This process through its application to the direct experience of mindfulness meditation practices
• The use of inquiry both personally and professionally as it relates to increasing the capacity to regulate affect and attention
• How to develop the ability to use inquiry
Who Should Attend
It is highly recommended that participants have facilitated at least one Mindfulness-Based Intervention (MBI) group and/or received mentorship prior to taking this course.
