Does the pace of modern life leave you feeling as if you are being swept downstream, with little time to notice the beauty of being alive? Mindfulness can help you restore a sense of balance and stability.
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course is the acknowledged leader in the field of modern mindfulness training because of its long-standing, ongoing scientific foundation and its rigorous certification standards for its teachers.
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
MBSR studies reveal the potency of mindfulness to reduce medical symptoms and psychological stress while enhancing the health and well-being of participants.
