Rebecca Eldridge has taught mindfulness to cancer survivors, people in chronic pain, medical and mental health professionals, lay ministers, and monastics, and was featured giving meditation instruction in two courses taught by Pema Chödrön: Making Friends with Yourself and How to Live with Compassion and Courage. She taught MBSR and MBSR graduate courses in the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society, as well as education programs for teachers-in-training through Oasis Institute. Before joining the faculty at the Center, Rebecca co-founded The Integrative Medicine Community of Hampton Roads in Virginia and served as a hospice volunteer.
Rebecca pioneered teaching MBSR Live Online at the UMass Center for Mindfulness, and recently co-founded East Coast Mindfulness, where she continues to develop programs to teach MBSR and train MBSR teachers in ways that invite students from all over the world to interact fully, in real time, with each other and the teacher in the space of their own home. East Coast Mindfulness now offers the first and only training program resulting in certification in teaching MBSR online: Train to Teach MBSR Live Online.
