Held live via Zoom, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an eight-week course that will help you learn about the physiology and science of stress. You’ll learn about a variety of mindfulness techniques like guided instruction, gentle stretching, mindful yoga, mindful communication, and daily practices.

The course meets once per week for eight weeks, including an orientation session and one daylong Saturday or Sunday retreat. Orientation is one hour, and the following classes meet for 2.5 hours (the first class after the orientation session and the last class are 3 hours in length). These sessions will include individual, tailored instruction in mindfulness meditation practices, as well as group discussions, gentle yoga and stretching, daily homework, and related class materials.

MBSR is about taking control of your life, being aware of influences that affect your health and wellbeing, and finding peace-of-mind and returning to balance in an oftentimes chaotic world. Developed by renowned practitioner and author Jon Kabat-Zinn, MBSR will teach you to consciously and methodically deal with stress, pain, illness, and the demanding challenges of everyday life.

For more than 15 years, the Center has offered unique mindfulness courses – we are a hub for mindfulness research, academic course instruction, and community mindfulness leadership and development. Your MBSR experience with us includes high-quality, cutting-edge instruction from expert teachers who are passionate about your health and wellbeing.
