Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Foundations (on-site classes)
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. It is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up, being fully alive, and being present for the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.

Duke Integrative Medicine brings MBSR to you, wherever you may be. Participants “meet” with their instructor and class via telephone conference. These offerings are designed to deliver the same teachings and opportunity for group learning of the on-site programs to those who are unable to visit our facility on a regular basis, for reasons of scheduling difficulties, distance, or physical limitations.
Both Foundation content and Graduate programs are offered through distance learning.

These programs are designed to offer alumni an opportunity to focus more deeply on particular topics introduced in the Foundations program.

We are aware that it can be difficult to find the time, motivation and support to continue what has been learned after a Foundations or Graduate class is over, so we offer alumni several opportunities to maintain their mindfulness practice.
