MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction 8-Week Workshop
Jan 9 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

Learning the stress-reducing skills of mindfulness mediation is simple, but not easy. It takes dedicated practice to form new habits. The good news is that the brain can be trained to greater awareness of what is happening in the present moment, rather than being relentlessly trapped in worrying about the future or obsessing about the past.

Many people who have worked with mindfulness apps or have taken short-term classes remark upon the difference in their learning after having taken MBSR. The key is the proven formula of eight weeks of dedicated practice, with expert instruction from highly-trained MBSR teachers, in the company of others who are committed to exploring and building their inner capabilities for greater well-being, increased attention, and more peaceful presence in their lives. If you are ready to learn more, please CLICK HERE.

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK COURSE from January 9th – February 27th. Partial attendance after January 9th is not allowed. Please see below for upcoming 8-week programs.

This course was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

History of MBSR

Almost forty years of scientific research has shown that those who have completed the MBSR course report:

• Less stress and anxiety

• Improved attention and cognition

• Better sleep

• Less self-judgment

• Greater overall health and well-being
