Thank you for your patience.

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?

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.

Course details:

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a structured 8-week course on mindfulness that promotes stress reduction, health and well being.  This highly participatory, practical course includes:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
  • Gentle stretching and mindful yoga
  • Inquiry exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life
  • Group dialogue and small group exercises
  • Daily home assignments
  • Guided audio files for home practice
  • a 50-page workbook with short readings, a guide to the course, and resources to support your ongoing investigation of mindfulness

Please see the MBSR page for full details about this well-researched class designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Medical Center.

Schedule:
8 classroom sessions: Thursday mornings 9:30 - Noon, September 25th - November 13th

Retreat day: Saturday November 1st, 9:30am - 4:00pm.
