Join the thousands of people from all walks of life who have successfully learned and applied the techniques of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Over 30 years of extensive medical research has demonstrated that MBSR is highly effective to reduce medical symptoms, manage chronic pain, ease stress, and relieve psychological distress. MBSR offers a positive way to actively engage in your own healing, take better care of yourself and discover a deeper sense of wellness and balance in your life.

The heart of this healing approach is based on a practice called “mindfulness”. Mindfulness is a basic human capacity, a way of learning to be aware of whatever is happening in your body, heart and mind that fosters a greater sense of connection to every aspect of your life.

In this 8-week MBSR class you will be introduced to a full range of mindfulness tools and practice applying them in life.

Participants will need their own yoga mat and light blanket. A Mindfulness-Stress based Stress Reduction Workbook by Bob Stahl, Ph.D. and Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D is required and is available on Amazon.com for about $16.
