Mindfulness is the ability to see clearly without letting past conditioning and emotions hijack our experience.
In this 8-week class you will systematically develop skills to live and lead with intentions and empowered choice.
We’ll be meeting once a week from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. There’s a silent retreat on June 18th, Saturday, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
About The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)
MBSR was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 at the UMass Medical School to help people learn to relate to whatever is happening in their lives with ease, compassion, & clarity. Since then more than 2,000 academic studies have examined the physiological, psychological, and inter-relational benefits of mindfulness. There is much evidence to show the structural and functional changes in the brain that take place after this eight-week program for better focus, problem solving, and empathy among other benefits in the participants.
MBSR is not:
Relaxation, although you may start living with more ease
Religious, although it could deepen your relationship with your religion
Positive thinking, although you may start noticing all the positive things in your life
