Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program that introduces mindfulness practices in the form of sitting meditation, body awareness, and mindful movement, modeled by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD. 

 

The program can help if stress is having a negative impact on your life, if you are experiencing chronic physical or mental distress, or if you are simply interested in learning ways to maintain health and well-being. Over 6,000 research papers have published findings on MBSR including decreased depression, pain, and distress, and increased attention, concentration, performance, and quality of life. 

 

By cultivating mindfulness does not mean that we will stop facing difficulties in our lives or we will not live the "heights" and the "depths" of our emotions, but that we will learn and be prepared to better manage and skillfully respond with calmness, clarity and self-compassion to life's challenges.

Benefits of the program:

  • Greater ability to manage anxiety and stress

  • Decreased psychosomatic symptoms

  • Loosening of the grip of negative thinking

  • Improvement in symptoms of burnout

  • Improved sense of well-being by learning how to be present and appreciate the simple pleasures of everyday life, connect with yourself and the experience of being alive

During the 8 weeks of the program, you will learn to reconnect with your inner strengths and resources for finding meaning in your life, to stay calm in difficult moments and to connect more deeply with what matters to you most. Skillfully applied, mindfulness will help you to let go of unproductive metal habits and reactivity and support you having a fresh start.

“We can't stop the waves, but we can learn to surf.”

Jon Kabat-Zinn, Creator of the MBSR program
