Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction – Live Online

January 4, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - February 22, 2021 @ 7:30 pm CST


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 40 years of research, proven to reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety. 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/meditation experience necessary. Open to adults, 18 and over, who are committed to self-exploration and self-care.
