Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

An Invitation to Learn, Grow and Heal

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program designed to help find peace of mind, learn to cope, and wake up to life. This challenging and rewarding experience combines comprehensive training in mindfulness meditation with mindful movement and lifestyle practices.

 

The group format is intimate and limited to 20 participants. The lighting is soft and the atmosphere quiet and calming. We sit in a circle to see everyone’s face and to better listen to words and emotions arising from the heart. We have small group exercises where we share and learn to trust ourselves, our partners on this journey and the organic process that unfolds during each session. We take time to explore questions, process fears and frustrations and to celebrate insight and progress along this path of purification.

 

Participants learn to stay present to the fullness of each moment as it unfolds, without the usual overlay of judgment or commentary. By cultivating non-judgmental awareness, skillful response can replace conditioned reactivity, allowing a natural movement toward healthy lifestyle choices and to more moments of restorative stillness and peace.

 

For over 30 years, a growing body of clinical research has demonstrated MBSR’s effectiveness as a powerful, integrated approach to coping effectively with physical, psychological and interpersonal stress as well as pain, illness and addiction. It is used in complementary medicine and wellness programs in universities and hospitals throughout the world. For many, this program provides a solid foundation for deep emotional healing and spiritual growth.
