What is Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)?

MBSR is a transformative 8-week course that offers simple, powerful methods for improving our quality of life, strengthening our ability to manage stress, illness, and chronic pain, and increasing our balance and joy.  This renowned, evidence-based program is set in a supportive environment that includes guided instruction in a wide variety of mindfulness practices (including meditation, gentle movement, and informal tools for daily life), group learning and discussions, and home assignments designed to help participants integrate mindfulness into their lives.  MBSR has nearly 40 years of scientific evidence supporting wide-ranging benefits, which are repeatedly validated by participants' reports.  If you are feeling stressed by circumstances in your life or longing for greater well-being, ease, and enjoyment, MBSR can offer you life-changing tools.
