Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

January 2019 | Starts week of Jan. 7 | Register now through Jan. 4

MBSR can help people who are coping with medical problems, job or family-related stress, and anxiety and depression. The majority of participants report lasting decreases in both physical and psychological symptoms. Pain levels improve and people learn to better cope with pain that may not go away. Most people also report an increased ability to relax, greater enthusiasm for life, improved self-esteem, and increased ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Distance Learning

January 2019 | Starts Jan. 15 | Register now through Jan. 11

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.

In the MBSR Distance Learning course participants “meet” with their instructor and classmates once a week via telephone conference, from wherever they may be.  This program is designed to deliver the same teachings and opportunity for group learning as our on-site MBSR program to those who are unable to visit our facility on a weekly basis, for reasons of scheduling difficulties, distance, or physical limitations.
