MINDFULNESS BASED STRESS REDUCTION (MBSR)
Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating non-judgmental awareness in day-to-day life. The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program teaches mind and body awareness techniques to help us live fully and joyfully even in the midst of physical, mental, or emotional pain and distress. Mindfulness meditation can help you feel better, sleep better, increase your ability to cope with stress and uncertainty, improve self-esteem, and renew enthusiasm for life and work.
Developing mindfulness skills allows us to gain immediate access to powerful inner resources for healing. Each class meeting includes periods of guided meditation, gentle movement, and discussion. This program is based on the widely acclaimed methods of John Kabat-Zinn, PhD, at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Read more about the MBSR program.
