Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)


Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week course on mindfulness practice and stress reduction developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. MBSR helps participants draw on their own inner resources and actively engage in caring for themselves to find greater balance, ease, and peace of mind. Over 18,000 people have completed the MBSR program since its creation.

The program was founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD at the Stress Reduction Clinic of UMass Medical School and described in his book Full Catastrophe Living. The technique was originally developed for use in hospitals with patients suffering from painful, chronic, or disabling conditions. It was found that following participation in an MBSR program, participants' levels of anxiety and depression decreased and their sense of well-being increased. Extensive research has shown that the MBSR program can be beneficial to anyone, regardless of their state of health.

    A Free Introduction to Mindfulness 

     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?

    This workshop will give you a taste of mindfulness training and is based on the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. MBSR has been shown to reduce chronic pain and boost the immune system; address painful mental states like depression and anxiety; minimize emotional reactivity and promote well-being; increase flexible attention and sharpen mental focus.
