Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
April 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - June 8, 2022 @ 8:30 pm UTC+0
The original, 8-week, evidence-based, experiential program designed to intensively and systematically train attention and cultivate greater awareness of the nature of moment-to-moment experience. It includes a daylong silent retreat between weeks 6 and 7 (on a weekend). It is the foundation of what can be a lifelong personal practice, and a prerequisite for many multi-day retreats.
MBSR was developed in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and decades of research have demonstrated positive outcomes such as:
* increased self-awareness
* improved emotional regulation
* reduction in symptoms for various physical and behavioral health conditions including anxiety, depression and chronic pain
* positive changes in risk factors that may lead to more serious chronic ailments
We all have ways of thinking and behaving, both when we are “stressed” and when we’re not. MBSR is a way to be so aware of how you think and act that you can eventually be at-choice–you can be intentional with how you meet your own thoughts, sensations, and emotions.
