The American Nurses Association's Health Risk Appraisal report found that 82% of nurses believe they're at a significant level of risk for illness due to workplace stress. A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program can help nurses manage both short -and long-term stress and cultivate self care skills resulting in increased attention and focus, empathy, emotional regulation, and enhanced immune functioning.

MBSR is an 8-week evidence based, experiential program designed to provide participants with intensive and systematic training in mindfulness meditation and movement practices, and in integrating into one’s daily life what is discovered and learned through the process of participating in the program.

Research on mindfulness-based training consistently demonstrate positive outcomes associate with increased self-awareness, emotional and attention regulation; reduction in symptoms for various physical and behavioral health conditions including anxiety, depression and chronic pain; and positive changes in risk factors that may lead to more serious chronic ailments. Come explore how mindfulness may support you in living life more fully, with greater ease and joy.
