Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
“You are the world expert on your life, your body, and your mind, or at least you are in the best position to become that expert if you observe carefully. Part of the adventure of meditation is to use yourself as a laboratory to find out who you are and what you are capable of doing.”

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) course is an 8-week program in which you will learn how to access and cultivate your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself with compassion while accessing your own inner resources for coping, growing and healing.
Since its inception in 1979, tens of thousands of people have completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) and learned how to use their innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness. Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is unfolding in your life, moment-to-moment, with awareness, compassion, acceptance, and curiosity. MBSR is a secular, scientifically informed approach that operates in harmony with any belief system or spiritual background and can be practiced by people of all backgrounds. No prior experience is necessary.
