Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course – Online

October 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - December 7, 2020 @ 8:30 pm AEDT


The new online format emerges from wisdom and care in response to the global health challenge. Undertaking this in-depth training will offer you a precious capacity for the rest of your life. We take a genuine, personal approach and our dedicated teachers will go the extra mile to help you engage with each other and your practice, in ways that are immediately satisfying and helpful. You will learn a range of mindfulness practices to cultivate an observant, accepting and compassionate stance towards your own internal experiences and how to apply this in a practical way to immediate life challenges.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based, user-friendly program that brings the principles of mindfulness meditation into everyday life by teaching specific skills and practices to help break cycles of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. As seen on ABC Catalyst TV.

Training Partner


Openground engages with individuals and organisations to promote the practice of mindfulness as a transformational process in health, education, industry and community development. Openground maintains close professional links with the Centre for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre (USA). Our courses offer depth, safety, continuity and connection with a dedicated, experienced teacher to help you engage with the heart of the matter – so that you can find more resilience, effectiveness and authority in your life. While a short course, app or workshop may offer a taste of mindfulness, it is unlikely to provide you with the experience, space and time to develop your own practice which is what leads to the outcomes you probably want and are truly possible from this inspiring method.
