Invite joy back into your life! This foundational 8-week course, originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is a proven method for working with chronic pain, illness, and stress. Now offered by medical centers, hospitals, and health maintenance organizations worldwide, the MBSR Course will empower and equip you to respond more effectively to personal and work-related stress while improving your well-being and overall health.

Scientific research for MBSR has consistently demonstrated:
    • Reduced stress, anxiety, and depression
    • Improved sleep, focus, and attention
    • Reduction of the symptoms of chronic illness including fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer treatment and recovery
    • Improved ability to experience joy and contentment
    • Improved confidence and self-acceptance

Mindfulness classes are intimate and highly experiential, which helps students understand the causes of stress, how stress affects the mind and body, and how mindfulness can help reduce its negative effects.

Learn Mindfulness Meditation Practices

During the course, you will become familiar with a wide range of formal and informal mindfulness practices including:

  • Body Scan
  • Sitting Meditation
  • Walking Meditation
  • Mindful Yoga
  • Eating Meditation
  • Routine Activities at Work and at Home

By participating in all of these different practices you can easily find the one that is right for you and your lifestyle. Manage stress better, naturally!
