Healing in the Present Moment
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)
Spring Session Starting April 3, 2017 (see below for dates and times)
The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program is a highly regarded program for working with stress, pain, and illness. Developed by renowned practitioner and author Jon Kabat-Zinn, MBSR will teach you to consciously and methodically deal with stress, pain, illness, and the demanding challenges of everyday life.
Research is proving that we can learn to use our own innate resources to:
• Cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations
• Increase our ability to relax and rejuvenate
• Decrease physical and psychological symptoms from illness
• Reduce pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope and deal with chronic pain
Who will benefit:
This program has benefited people who are facing stress, pain, medical conditions, and psychological distress and who suffer from the following symptoms:
• Stress: job, family, financial
• Trouble sleeping
• Poor concentration
• High blood pressure
• Fear and anxiety
• GI distress
• Chronic pain
• Chronic illnesses
Participants will learn skills in mindfulness meditation and how to build upon personal strengths in order to respond more effectively to health challenges and offset the adverse effects of stress. The MBSR will help participants cope and live more fully with a wide variety of challenges, and to be present to all of life, including its joys.
This program is eight weeks and nine sessions long. Participants meet once per week for 2.5 hours, and come together for a day-long Saturday or Sunday retreat.
