Frequently Asked Questions:
Is this program just for OTs?
This program has an OT focus. In the past, we’ve had OTs, student OTs and rehab aides. If you are working in the area of OT or a closely related area, this program may be for you. Feel free to send me an email if you’re not sure ([email protected]).
One of the amazing and unique things about this program is the focus on mindfulness and occupational well-being so we will be using OT models and research.
When are the calls? What if I can’t make it?
The membership gives you access live calls twice a month. During these calls, we’ll practice a meditation together, discuss the material in more detail and you’ll have the chance to ask questions. The calls are typically on Mondays and there’s some variation in the times to allow people from different time zones to participate.
But, in reality, only about half the participants come to each call and the rest listen to the recording, which is available by the next day. You’ll be able to download an audio version of the recording if you want to get away from the screen while you listen or you can watch the video online.
What are the monthly kits?
Each month, I'll have a new theme. You'll get access to an audio recording of a new meditation, a unit of how to incorporate that theme into your own practice and how to integrate it into your work. The theme will also be part of our lives that month.
How does the Day of Mindfulness work?
Every three months, I'll offer a longer day of practice (about 5 hours) where we can try a series of formal and informal meditations together.
How much time does the course take?
Most participants have reported engaging in the course for about 2 hours per week for eight weeks. This includes the pre-recorded materials, readings, live calls and some mindfulness meditation practice. (Of course, you can take longer and invest less time each week. It's self-paced.)
I’ll be suggesting and providing meditation practices. It’s up to you how much time you spend on the meditation practices. As a result, some people engage with the material for more than 4 or 5 hours per week.
How long is the course?
There are 8 modules in the course which will be released, one per week over 8 weeks.
Will I get CEU?
I’m not able to give CEUs but you will get a certificate with the hours at the end of the course. You can use that to approach your employer or regulatory body.
See you in the community!
