Mentoring sessions for teachers of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

Sessions are available for both MBSR teachers who would simply like support for their programs and teachers who are enrolled and taking part in the MBSR mentorship program of the UCSD Center for Mindfulness Professional Training Intstitute (MBPTI).

Allan HKAllan Goldstein is the Managing Director of the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness. Working in collaboration with Dr. Steven Hickman, Executive Director, he has contributed to the development and evolution of the UCSD CFM Professional Training Institute and Certification programs and the center’s UC San Diego Health System’s group mindfulness programs and teaching staff.  Allan’s growth within the field of Mindfulness-Based Interventions has led him to teach extensively to groups and individuals in various health care, university, military, business, and community settings. He has even taught in the virtual world of Second Life. Allan has had a passion for learning, teaching, and providing mentorship for teachers of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programs since participating in his first program in 1993. He began participating in the professional training programs at the UMass Center for Mindfulness in the year 2000. Allan’s strong passion for promoting and facilitating the valuable teachings found within MBSR and Mindfulness-Based Interventions has propelled him through a journey that continues to unfold in mystery with his love for this sacred work.

  1. Greetings Allan,
    I am a physician assistant and experienced MBSR teacher, working to expand my teaching exposure. I teach through my studio and at Bay Path College ( a three credit course called “Stress Management” )
    I live and work in Longmeadow, MA, outside of Springfield, MA.

    Marketing and recruitment area huge challenge for me.

    Any ideas, suggestions, net-working opportunities that you know of in my neighborhood?

    wishing you well – and thanks for being on the web and doing this important work,

    • Hi Leslie,

      Indeed “filling the room” is a big challenge. It’s also a broad area for discussion which includes using all our networking abilities and skills. Along with having utilizing professional contacts and connections one thing I have been engaged in most recently is focusing on social media marketing. In the Springfield, MA area I’m only aware of people presenting there own programs. One thought that comes to mind is in some way using your course at Bay Path College to leverage your ability to reach out into the community. Also a suggestion based on what I might do if I were living back in MA is to participate in as many programs offered by the UMass CFM as possible. I believe that not only will that offer tremendous learning potential it also may provide networking opportunities. Dedication to the work has opened up opportunities for me far beyond what a simple marketing strategy might have resulted in. I sense you have that and it will serve you well.

      All the best,

  2. Hi Allen! Do you know of any 8-week MBSR trainings on Oahu? I’m moving there June 2014 for a job and I’d love to take one of these trainings. Please let me know. Thanks 🙂
