Mindful Behavior Change

September 19, 2023 @ 5:15 pm - November 7, 2023 @ 7:30 pm UTC-5


Initiating and maintaining behavior change is key to healthy living, even though we all know it can be difficult. We may need to make adjustments to our daily routines in order to prevent or manage many chronic medical and mental health conditions. The Mindful Behavior Change (MBC) program can help participants to become curious about and aware of their autopilot mode and come into a relationship with reality that allows for the possibility to emerge in a healing direction.

MBC is an 8-week group program developed by faculty at the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion (CMC). Inspired by Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and other 8-week mindfulness-based programs, MBC was developed with a trauma-informed approach and includes specific components for applying mindfulness to support health behavior change. MBC uses a gentle method, explicitly focusing on cultivating mindfulness as it enhances inner warmth and self-compassion. This program also trains participants to use mindfulness interpersonally to support behavior change.

*See our research studies based on this curriculum and find the course syllabus below.

Each session will be experiential, involving group time with video on, as well as individual practice time with a choice for video off to support less screen time during the session together. We ask that you make a commitment to be present during the full 2 hours on most or all of the weeks so that your presence can be part of a consistent practice and community “container” for yourself and others. We look forward to our journey in living well together!
