Mindfulness based stress reduction




Beginning January 2018, we will be offering two Mindulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes.

In this 8-week program, participants will learn about mindfulness and practices to increase self-awareness, self-regulation, and compassion, as well as tools to cope more effectively with both short- and long-term stressors. Each week’s 2.5-hour session includes mindfulness insights along with guided mindfulness practice and group discussion. No prior experience or knowledge of mindfulness is required. Graduates of the course report improved focus, sense of connection, and the capacity to recover more quickly from challenging events.
