Six-Week Essentials of MBSR Program Overview:

Our six-week series is based on the highly acclaimed and widely studied MBSR Program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD. Learn a new set of skills that are now being taught around the world to help you deal with stress and life in a mindful way. Learn mindfulness practices and secular forms of meditation. See how you can use the power of your present moment awareness to reduce stress and promote wellbeing.

This experiential and intensive six-week training program, Essentials of MBSR, offers a powerful, integrative approach for tapping into and mobilizing inner resources for healing and well-being. Participants can develop a life-affirming approach to living with many stress-influenced conditions such as anxiety, anger, depression, headaches, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, and gastrointestinal problems. Like the eight-week MBSR program, sessions will include instruction on mindfulness meditation and body practices, including gentle yoga, which we can adapt to suit people of every level of ability. There will also be lively discussions on health-related subjects.

This program is open to new students, longtime practitioners and alumni of Mindful-Way. We hope to see you there.
