Mindfulness Program Schedule 

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is an evidence-based program designed to teach you how to take better care of yourself through mindfulness. People come to MBSR dealing with a wide range of conditions, including illness, chronic pain, or simply stress from their busy lives.  The course offers intensive training in relaxation techniques, meditation, gentle Yoga-based stretching, lectures in various aspects of health and wellness, and supportive group discussions. The emphasis on Mindfulness, which simply means paying attention in a non-judgmental way to each moment, offers a practical way to apply these methods in everyday life. The course was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. It is now taught in some 300 hospitals and medical centers worldwide.
