Thank you for adding to the discussion Janie. I am glad to hear that a business was willing to implement a modified course. What industry? I will share below part of our business plan for mindfulness services other than MBSR that we are hoping to implement into the business world.
Modified MBSR course: This course takes the principles explored in the MBSR course; however is delivered in a modified 4 week format. The orientation is free of charge and required before signing up for the course. The modified MBSR course consists of 3 sessions of 90 minutes each and a 4 hour retreat.
Half-day session (3.5 hours): This session includes an introduction to mindfulness, the basic attitudes of mindfulness, effects of stress on the mind and body, benefits of mindfulness meditation, discussion of mindfulness in daily life and up to 4 guided meditations. During this session there are brief periods of self-reflection. Facilitator to travel to location (up to 20 miles from Charlotte, further locations will incur additional travel time fees) )
Full-day session (7 hours): This session takes the information provided in the half-day session and explores each area more fully. During this session there will guided mindful activities that may include gentle movements. Guided meditations are provided that invite members to explore a deeper level of awareness. This training will include specific areas of discussion such as communication and self-compassion. This training can be modified to meet the needs of audience based on request. This session will include varying levels of guided meditation and self-reflections.
Multi-day retreat (2-days): The multi-day retreat includes periods of silence, a more expansive experience in mindfulness and guided meditations, gentle movements, and various mindful activities. Areas such as communication, relationships, self-awareness and self-compassion are fully explored. The multi-day retreat is designed based on the particular needs of the members attending and requires consultation with the trainer(s).
