Inquiry is the practice of asking a question to investigate our experience. It is at the heart of MBCT and MBSR. This is the final course module of our MBCT & MBSR Facilitation Certificate Programs.

Inquiry is the practice of asking a question to investigate our experience. It has been referred to as the heart of MBCT because it is such an essential part of this modality and is vital for those wishing to facilitate MBCT groups. It is also the most difficult practice to learn.
