Invite joy back into your life with this 8-Week foundational course! Originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, it is now offered by medical centers and hospitals worldwide. MBSR has a proven track record in reducing pain, illness, and stress.

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

Mindfulness classes are small and practice-focused. We explore the causes of stress and how stress affects the mind and body. Empowered with this information, students learn how to reduce these negative effects.

Learn Mindfulness Meditation Practices

During the course, you will practice several formal and informal mindfulness practices including:

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

Learning different practices will help you find the one that is right for you and your lifestyle. Manage stress better, naturally!

Class Details:
The class consists of eight weekly sessions and one All-Day Retreat after the sixth week of class. The Retreat is an extended period of practice to integrate what you have learned in the course.
