MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) is an 8-week psychoeducational group program that helps individuals increase their capacity for greater calm through the development of practical skills. Participants will learn to cultivate a different relationship to stress, as it relates to existing chronic physical and psychological conditions. MBSR is delivered in a highly experiential workshop format that combines the teaching of foundations with guided mindfulness practices and mindful movement exercises. Such exercises will also include options to modify movements and poses for safety and comfort.
Who Should Attend
Individuals suffering from chronic stress, illness or pain, who wish to increase their overall health and well-being. See guidelines on whether MBSR is right for you.
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program consists of eight 2.5-hour weekly sessions and a full-day silent retreat. Prior to the start of the course, there is a mandatory orientation session. This is an opportunity for participants to determine their suitability for undertaking the program. A commitment to attendance and home practice activities is required. Participants are expected to attend the day-long silent retreat.
Note: While it is important for participants to attend all nine sessions, Session 4 on November 20th is particularly important – if you are unable to attend this session, you should consider registering for a different program offering.
