Founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is an evidence based secular (nonreligious) intensive mindfulness meditation training program. The primary aim of the MBSR program is to support new ways of learning and being far beyond the completion of the program, and into the rest of one’s life. Since the beginning, MBSR has been at the forefront of scientific research revealing time and time again that those who practice in mindfulness based practices experience improvements in;
Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, Sleep, Immune System Functioning, Weight Management, Concentration, Communication, Relationships, and overall enduring health and well-being.
Meditation, mindful movement and self-reflection is at the heart of the MBSR course, and so it is strongly encourage that you are willing to explore these practices both in and out of class time in order to experience the greatest benefits from the practice. Each week the practice and course work deepens which allows for a slow integration of mindfulness into daily life.
This 9-week, 10-session, participatory course includes:
Intense practice in mind-body awareness through guided meditation, mindful movement and self reflection in and out of class time
Group dialogue, dyads, and discussions aimed at enhancing the teachings, the practice, and overall awareness
Various introspective activities practiced both in and out of class time to aid in integration of mindfulness into everyday life
Strong emphasis on developing own consistent daily practice throughout the course and beyond.
