Mindfulness is the practice of present moment, non-judgmental awareness of one’s life experience. MBSR, based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness, is taught at integrative health centers, universities, and teaching hospitals worldwide.
Backed by neuroscience and ancient compassion based practices, this highly participatory, evidence based program combines meditation, mindful movement (gentle yoga), group discussion, and inquiry in a supportive learning environment to teach class participants how to use mindfulness to relate differently to stress.
Practicing this powerful, integrative approach tapping into and mobilizing innate inner resources for healing and well-being empowers participants to explore habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and acting, while learning practical ways to integrate mindfulness into daily life, and, to build and sustain a personal mindfulness practice.
Studies indicate that mindfulness-based stress reduction programs can reduce anxiety and increase general well-being and overall happiness.
Mindfulness can be successfully learned and practiced by people of all backgrounds. No prior experience is necessary.
