Based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, the program‘s structured educational approach offers mindfulness meditation and gentle yoga as the core of its program to guide people to take better care of themselves and to live healthier and more adaptive lives. The MBSR curriculum provides experiential training in a variety of mind-body practices that share the common thread of cultivating a careful and kind attention to our moment by moment experiences. Through this cultivation of mindful awareness, participants learn to mobilize their inner resources to work with stress, pain and illness in new ways that can promote healthy adapation, growth and healing. People who have participated in MBSR have found relief from a range of physiological and stress-related conditions including:
- chronic pain
- migraine headaches
- high blood pressure
- sleep disorders
The program includes eight 2 hour sessions, a one day retreat, online workbook, and audio online practices (CDs are available upon request) and requires a strong commitment to daily practice.
