Linda Lehrhaupt, PhD

Linda Lehrhaupt joins us to speak about her book, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: The MBSR Program for Enhancing Health and Vitality.

If you’ve taken an MBSR program, you likely learned a lot from your teachers and especially your fellow participants. And you may have been exposed to a lot more that you weren’t able to explore and steep yourself in, just because of the breadth and depth of what was shared in the container of the program. Fortunately there’s a new book to help with that.

Linda Lehrhaupt, Ph.D. has created the Mindfulness-Based Teacher Project (MBTP) to share her more than three decades of experience as a teacher of mindfulness-based approaches. Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Mindfulness-Based Approaches in Germany, she has been leading teacher-training programs in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) since 2001. She began training with the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1993 and is certified by them to teach MBSR. She has also directed teacher-training programs in Tai Chi and Qigong for more than 20 years and has received dharma transmission as a Zen teacher in the White Plum lineage, founded by Taizan Maezumi Roshi.
