Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

July 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - August 24, 2022 @ 9:00 pm UTC+0


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 class. 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.

Please note, you are still able to register for a course after the orientation session as there is a pre-recorded version available.

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.

This class is appropriate for anyone wishing to improve their general health and wellbeing through a regular and consistent mindfulness practice. MBSR meets once weekly for 2.5 hours throughout an 8-week timespan. In addition to your weekly classes, you will deepen mindfulness practice at one all-day retreat.
