Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
The MBSR course focuses on the learning and refining of "wise attention" (mindfulness) that can enhance one's ability to relax and be aware of our psychological states, physical states, and actions. Program participants learn to mobilize their inner resources to take better care of themselves and make positive life changes. The program aims to help participants develop resources and skills that can be applied to everyday situations as a means to cope more effectively with stress and to find greater health and balance, ease, and peace of mind over a lifetime. The MBSR course has 8 weekly classes, each approximately 2.5 hours in length.
