Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program
Eight classes over eight weeks, including a six-hour meditation retreat at the midway point.
Who Can Benefit
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is for all of us. It is designed for “regular people” dealing with the inevitable stress and challenges of being alive. Highly respected in the medical community, MBSR is seen as a complement to traditional medical and psychological treatment—not a replacement. The curriculum has been proven effective in helping individuals receiving medical treatment or anyone living with chronic pain, anxiety and depression, cancer and disease, work and family pressure, eating disturbances, or heart disease. The valuable skills learned during the eight-week program prove beneficial throughout life’s journey, helping participants better manage and understand stress, pain, challenging situations, and difficult emotions.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD., at the UMass Medical School, is rooted in the integration of Buddhist teachings and yoga studies with the scientific findings of Western medicine. MBSR assists participants in cultivating mindful awareness and living. The curriculum combines guided instruction in mindfulness meditations, interactive presentation, and group dialogue. Participants learn to draw upon their innate strengths when faced with life's challenges.
