Decades of research show that Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) reduces chronic pain and boosts the immune system; addresses painful mental states like depression and anxiety; minimizes emotional reactivity and promotes well-being; increases flexible attention and sharpens mental focus; and actually thickens grey matter in the areas of empathy and problem-solving. Happiness can be a delightful by-product.
Please see our PROGRAMS page, MBSR section for full details about this well-researched class. Designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Medical Center.
