Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) (Download our PDF with complete details)
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) based on the work of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society, University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester. Mindfulness meditation practices offer a way of being fully aware of the present as it unfolds, moment by moment. Through these practices people learn how to relate differently and more skillfully with the stream of constant thinking and doing, which is often a leading cause of stress in our lives. This leads to stillness, relaxation and a sense of peace, gradually allowing individuals to find ways of responding rather than reacting to internal and external stressors. People with chronic illness/conditions and those interested in navigating daily stressors have found MBSR helpful. Among the benefits reported by participants are fewer and less severe symptoms, a more relaxed body and mind, greater self-confidence and sense of feeling connected in a positive way to their lives. This can be presented in a four week to eight week program, one and half hour to two hours per week. It includes material for practice at home.

FEES FOR WORKSHOPS, COURSES AND PROGRAMS FOR COMPANIES, AGENCIES AND ORGANIZATIONS: Costs vary depending on group size, travel time and structure of workshop, courses and programs. Sessions are available at an individual or group rate. Please call for information.
