Details

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based, interactive, and structured course that runs for 8 weeks. It is the ‘gold standard’ in Mindfulness training and has been rigorously researched over the last 30 years.

Designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts, this course has helped over 24,000 participants world-wide live with more ease and resilience by changing how they relate to stress.
During the MBSR participants will learn how to:

  • Practice various forms of guided meditation including body scan, mindful movement, and sitting meditation
  • Get curious, through dialogue, about their experience of meditation to gain a deeper understanding
  • Practically integrate mindfulness into many aspects of their lives including challenges, relationships, communication, and self care.

Research indicates that after completing this course participants experience:

  • Reduced stress, anxiety, pain, and reactivity
  • Improved sleep, relationships, and awareness
  • Reduced impact of self judgement and greater self acceptance
  • More effective navigation of interpersonal conflict
  • Greater self-worth and compassion for others

Like training a muscle in the body, training the muscles of the mind takes practice, patience, and intention.
The course does require a level of commitment to yourself and to your meditation practice.
Each class is 2 hours and consists of:

  • Guided meditation practices
  • Dialogue with the facilitator and the group
  • Psycho-educational exercises

Home practice is a major component of the course and will involve guided meditation practices of about 30 minutes a day.
All necessary materials will be provided by the facilitator including:

  • A PDF workbook
  • Guided meditation recordings

Towards the final weeks of the course participants will attend a half-day guided meditation retreat.
