Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Mindfulness is a way of relating directly and compassionately to whatever is happening; taking charge of the challenges and savoring the joys.
The 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is designed to teach mind-body awareness and self care to people living with physical or psychological symptoms due to stress, pain, or illness. It is also essential for preventative care and leading a most fulfilling life. It’s based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and offers lifelong tools for increased well-being.
The 28-hour course schedule consists of eight weekly classes and one daylong class on a weekend day. Participants learn lifelong tools to help maximize life, even in the midst of stress, pain and illness. This highly participatory, practical course includes:
- Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
- Gentle, mindful movement
- Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in daily life
- Individually-tailored instruction
- Daily home assignments
- Four home practice audio recordings and a home practice manual
People participate for reasons as diverse as:
- Stress — work, personal or financial
- Chronic pain and illness
- Anxiety or depression
- GI distress
- Sleep disturbances
- High blood pressure
- Preventative self-care
