If you could take a class that reduces your toxic perceived stress by 36% in 8 weeks, would you?
Of Allison’s MBSR graduates, 85% reduce their toxic stress by an average of 36%.
Although stress is at the cause of many physical illnesses and psychological disorders, it is not often diagnosed or treated at the root level. There are very few resources that effectively treat stress as a condition. MBSR is an 8-week intensive course, backed by 41 years of research, proven to reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety. Taught by a certified MBSR instructor and utilizing curriculum developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD at UMASS Center for Mindfulness, this non-clinical (i.e. not group therapy) course is designed to teach mind-body awareness, recognize and put to use our inner psychological resources to respond to toxic stress, increase stress hardiness, focus, creativity, regulate emotions, and allow a greater sense of self-care and well-being. No prior mindfulness or meditation experience necessary. Open to adults, 18 and over, who are committed to self-exploration and self-care.
