Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is one of most recognized and respected mind/body training programs in the world. Pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, mindfulness has emerged as a trainable skill with measurable clinical efficacy.
The emphasis of MBSR is the development of mindful awareness- the ability to pay attention on purpose in the present moment without judgment. It is simple but not easy. It is innate but underdeveloped. It is the heart of the body/mind connection. These eight weeks are an important opportunity to slow down and pay attention to how your body, mind, and emotions actually operate; and to practice new ways to lessen unnecessary stress reactivity while strengthening effective responses.
In the eight week program, you will experience the full MBSR curriculum in depth. It is an immersive personal learning and healing process that you also share with classmates, family members, and integrate into your daily life. It is an investment in your health and well-being that can have lifelong rewards.
The program supports you to:
- Practice orienting from a holistic perspective, rather than problem solving
- Explore perceptual habits and ways to see from new perspectives
- Renew your ability to tap into the pleasure and power of the present moment
- Be curious and kind about your particular stress patterns
- Deepen your capacity to tolerate and learn from difficult experiences
- Enhance your ability to relate to others with integrity and authenticity
- Understand the impact of stressors, and on-going ways to choose what helps
- Reconnect to the adventure of life and the power of the moment to shape the future.
