MBSR Course Information

Loved the course. I’m finding it to be a very life changing tool....grounding and uplifting simultaneously!
— Lynn Whitestone

MBSR means “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction”.  It  is an approach to self-care that helps deal with stress, pain and illness. The MBSR course teaches people to focus awareness on body sensations, thoughts, and emotions in a nonjudgmental way.

This course is modeled on the program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.  Kabat-Zinn’s program is evidence-based and is the “gold standard” in such mindfulness training.

The course consists of eight weekly classes and one day-long class on a Saturday or Sunday. It is designed to introduce mindfulness practice as a way of reducing stress and developing greater balance, control and participation in one’s life. Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in one’s life, including the challenges of stress, pain, illness and everyday demands.

You will learn:

1.  How to reduce and relate to stress;

2.  Methods to improve your ability to concentrate and think clearly;

3.  To deal with difficulties in your life with balance and awareness;

4.  To participate in your own wellness and health;

5.  To cultivate your natural capacity to care for yourself and find greater ease and peace of mind.

Cost: $350 + HST
