Is stress affecting your life? Would you like to learn easily accessible methods of increasing well-being and decreasing stress? The world-renowned Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, is backed by numerous research studies as a complement to traditional treatment approaches. Tens of thousands of people have participated in the MBSR program in order to learn how to cope more effectively with a variety of challenges, including general life stress, cardiovascular disease/high blood pressure, chronic illness or pain, cancer, depression & anxiety, gastrointestinal distress, sleep disturbances, among other conditions.
The program includes guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices and concepts, gentle mindful stretching, group discussions, daily home assignments and home practice materials, including four guided mindfulness practice CDs. In order to fully benefit from the program, a strong commitment to attending all the classes and engaging in the home mindfulness practice exercises for approximately 45-60 minutes a day is necessary.
