Are you interested in exploring new ways to manage stress and prevent illness?
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an intensive eight-week program that empowers participants to take an active role in their health and wellness. This program was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn to help participants transform their reactions to daily stress, anxiety, chronic pain, illness, and stress-related conditions, and is aimed at improving life at home, in social situations, and in the workplace. The course consists of intensive training in mindfulness meditation, gentle movement, and group support.
