Our accessible, in-depth training in mindfulness now available online.
Are you interested in mindfulness and its potential for enhancing health and well-being? Are you under stress? Are you struggling with chronic conditions such as chronic pain, depression, and anxiety? Are you feeling as if life is too much? Or do you simply want to live a fuller life with greater balance?
Join us for our most accessible in-depth training in mindfulness. A great way to get started with mindfulness training. Our 4-week Fundamentals of Mindfulness class is based on the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction class, offering essential learnings and practices in a shorter time frame.
Research over the last ten years has shown Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to reduce chronic pain and boost the immune system; to address painful mental states like anxiety and depression; to promote well-being and reduce emotional reactivity; to increase attention and focus; and to enlarge the brain in the areas of decision-making, flexibility and empathy.
