Osher Center for Integrative Health

At the Osher Center for Integrative Health at Vanderbilt, we focus on your whole health: body, mind and spirit. We offer scientifically proven complementary therapies, such as acupuncture and yoga, to work alongside your conventional medical care. More than treating symptoms, this integrative medicine empowers you to take an active part in your healing and wellness so you can enjoy a better quality of life.

Professional Development in Mindfulness Facilitation

Beginning August 25

This 44-hour training course is designed for those who have experienced the transformative beauty of mindfulness practice and want to bring it into their work with others. There will be an emphasis on continuing to deepen one’s own practice as you learn to guide others skillfully and compassionately.

This course was created for psychologists, professional counselors, marital and family therapists, physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, educators, business professionals and others who desire to facilitate mindfulness practices with patients, clients and colleagues.

Participants will be offered a well-rounded understanding of the contemporary field, research findings and historical origins. Both those who are new to facilitating mindfulness and those who are already using it in their work will benefit from the structured mentorship and richness of a learning community.

Registration is open through August 5.
