Mindfulness Network CIC - Our Supervisors

Pam Erdmann

Pam Erdmann

I have worked at the Centre for Mindfulness (CFM) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School from 1994 until 2001. I still continue to teach both classes and interns at CFM and work on a part-time basis.

When I was first hired by CFM, I worked in the Prison Project, teaching MBSR to inmates in the medium and minimum security sections of the Massachusetts Correctional System. I have also taught MBSR in corporate settings, in the clinic at UMass Memorial Health Care and to municipal workers as well as in primary school and with the community at large.

I have supervised mindfulness teachers for over fifteen years through Bangor, U.Mass and the University of California at San Diego.  Even with years of experience, I feel each supervisee has something to teach me. I do this work with passion and great joy.  

My personal practice deepens as I grow older and wiser. It is far more "off the cushion" than just formal practice or retreats. It supports becoming an Elder in a deep rich way. Moving into my seventy-ninth year, I am filled with gratitude for the work.
