Grounded in the 2500 year-old tradition of Buddhist meditation and psychology, mindfulness is a key component in a wide variety of empirically validated interventions, including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Neuroscientists are mapping how mindfulness training can change the brain, and scholars are taking a fresh look at the nature of “self,” emotion regulation, compassion, wisdom, and the far reaches of human potential. It can be used to strengthen the therapy relationship and to enhance the lives of patients and clients through the formal or informal practice of mindfulness meditation. We will examine the application of mindfulness to a wide range of clinical populations and conditions, will compare and contrast Western and Buddhist perspectives on health and healing, and will practice meditation together.
This is essential to understand how mindfulness works and to apply it creatively in psychotherapy. To support this commitment, ongoing instruction and practice in meditation will be offered in each class, and periodic consultation with experienced meditation teachers will be available. Preference will be given to those who are well established in their clinical practice, who have had at least some exposure to mindfulness meditation, and who wish to deepen their understanding of mindfulness and its clinical applications.


I have deeply taken in the experience and what I have learned about being in the present moment is also shaping my forward plans.
Honestly, it is a challenge to put the gratitude into words that come close to what I feel about IMP. I have spoken to several staff members in our division who have also shared how they are working differently with self-compassion. So, thank you for knowledge, training and care you share, and the rippling out it allows for your students to bring into our worlds. The combination of the course material, the commitment to – and support of – meditation and the wonderful connections in the group has had an enormously positive impact on both my life and my work. You have created an emotionally safe, intellectually stimulating and interpersonally rich context in which to learn and grow.
Before arriving to Boston…I found this amazing and unique program, a program I was looking for without even knowing so.


There is a saying: “The path is wiser than the one taking it,” and this is exactly how I feel. The incredible classes, exciting speakers, relaxing retreats, new friends and of course you, all made this year simply unforgettable.
It began over 25 years ago as a study group consisting of psychotherapists with long-term meditation and clinical practices.
