What is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction?
The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is an 8 week highly experiential program in learning how to meditate, as well as how to relate to life’s challenges with less reactivity and more wisdom and clarity. MBSR is a scientifically researched course for reducing stress while building resilience, balance, and peace of mind. MBSR offers a powerful, integrative approach for tapping into and accessing innate inner resources for healing and well-being.
MBSR is considered one of the most reliable ways to learn how to use mindfulness and meditation to form new skills for living well and enjoying life, regardless of its inevitable ups and downs. This course was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachussets Medical School in 1979.
