Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, that assists people who want to learn to use their own internal resources to respond more skillfully to stress, medical and psychological conditions, and promote healthy living.

Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose to present-moment experiences (body sensations, emotions, thoughts) in a relaxed and non-judging way. Intentional present-moment awareness, developed through mindfulness meditation practices, helps us experience whatever is happening gin our life as it unfolds with curiosity, non-judging attention, and compassion for ourselves and others. Engaging in our life in this manner helps us to become more skillful and creative in our responses while gaining insight into how to free ourselves from habitual patterns of reacting.

This course, modeled after the courses that have been offered at the Stress Reduction Clinic a the University of Massachusetts Medical Center for more than 30 years, consists of a free introductory class followed by 8 weekly classes and one day-long workshop.

This highly participatory course includes:

Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices

gentle stretching and mindful yoga

Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life

Daily home practice, including guided meditations and practices for integrating mindfulness into daily life

Eighteen guided meditation recordings in mp3 format and a home practice manual
