Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)


Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)


The MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) program is an intensive eight-week training to empower participants to take an active role in the management of their health and wellness. Classes meet weekly for 2.5 hours and are open to all members of the community. Included in the program is an all-day retreat. Participants are asked to practice mindfulness meditation and/or mindful movement for 45 minutes a day with instructional recordings. It is helpful to plan ahead to consider how you will implement these practices into your schedule.

This is a fantastic program for those challenged by the everyday stressors, as well as those living with anxiety, depression, difficulty sleeping, chronic pain or living with illness. This program also wakes people up to create healthy changes in relationships with work and home life.

Participants report an increased ability to manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety, and depression both at home and in the workplace. Participants have reported an overall improved quality of life, more effective communication (in both speaking and listening), feeling more compassionate and less judgmental of themselves and others.

MBSR was founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 from University of Massachusetts and is offered in hundreds of hospitals across the world.

Each class includes guided instruction of mindfulness practices, small and large group exercises, and discussions on working with a variety of topics such as stress reactivity, stress response, stress hardiness, awareness of how we react to pleasant and unpleasant experiences, mindfulness of technology and mindful listening and speaking.
