MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an effective, scientifically researched method for reducing physical and psychological suffering while building resilience, balance, and peace of mind.
Learning to practice mindfulness provides a way of relating directly with whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, of consciously and systematically noticing and responding to your own stress and pain,, and to the challenges and demands of living as well.
This starts with cultivating present-moment attention in an open, nonjudgmental way. MBSR is a nonsectarian, scientifically researched approach that is in harmony with any faith-based tradition.
Classes offered in-person and live-online.
Scientific research at medical and research centers around the world suggests that MBSR can positively and often profoundly affect participants' lives.
The benefits include:
- Stress reduction
- Decreased medical symptoms
