Discover MBSR

8 Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program

New class starts July 19th!

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a highly effective, 8-week group program which teaches participants to practice mindfulness. Designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center 40 years ago and extensively researched, this program can help you recognize how stress affects your life and teach you ways to manage it. Underpinnings of the programs teach participants the practices of mindful movement, eating, walking and how to maintain states of mindful living. 

New class starts July 19th!

What to expect:

  • 1 Each class includes practice in one or more of the formal mindfulness exercises taught in this MBSR course; body scans, mindfulness yoga, sitting meditation, or walking meditation.
  • 2 Students will time to share and further explore their experiences with the exercises conducted during class and their daily practices at home. 
  • 3 Each class session has a specific theme (the meaning of mindfulness, the origin of stress, stress reactivity & response, mindful communication, self-care, and habitual mind patterns), which is explored through practice and sharing together.

WHY LEARN MBSR?

MBSR reminds us how to cultivate the awareness of physical sensations in the body. Meditation practices have been proven to positively impact focus and attention. MBSR is proven to assist in changing habitual reactivity patterns and allows us to identify early signs of stress and gives us space to intervene earlier. These practices will help you become more resilient and teaches how to quiet your mind and relieve emotional distress.

We will examine how to change your relationship with stress, anxiety, chronic pain or illness. Through this process you will enhance your ability to cope with difficult and unpleasant events. If you want to cultivate deeper self-awareness, choose healthy responses when encountering stress and you want strategies to improve confidence and appreciation for life, then this course is for you.

Developing a daily meditation practice is a core objective of the program.

Audio files of guided meditations and written practice materials will be provided to support your daily practice.

MBSR COURSE REVIEWS

"This course was so beneficial that I am taking it again. MBSR has facilitated opening my mind up more to the possibility of more self observation through consistency and non judgement. Also, learning the power of the practice when being in relationship with others. It has helped slow my reactivity time way down."

- L. Menante
LMT/RYT

"I would highly recommend this course. I loved practicing these skills in the group setting. It was powerful to hear each others stories and how they were using these practices in their lives."

- Anne M.
Social Work, MSW, LISW

“Thanks to this course, I find myself taking more time to respond to situations in which normally I would catastrophize.”

- Heath D.
Professor, Honors College, Ph.D.

"This course has been a model of "good practices" in on-line teaching. I was at first apprehensive about a 2.5 hour evening class (major potential for falling asleep!), but the variation in activities, switching between personal practice, micro-teaching, small group and large group sharing, always keep me engaged."

- Kristie F.
College Professor

"One thing I definitely gained is increased patience. With interpersonal interactions, I find myself really stopping to think about my reaction and what prompted the emotion. I am giving people more of the benefit of the doubt. The wedge of awareness has had a huge impact on my ability to cope with stressors."

- A. Snyder, NP-C, MSN
Nurse Practitioner

"I felt really peaceful right after every meeting, even for an extended couple of days"

-Stone | CAPM
