This is the original 8-week MBSR-Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, as devised by Jon Kabat-Zinn and  is designed to teach participants how to understand and work with the mind body connection in order to reduce stress and improve self regulation.  The program, which will be taught in the Irvine, Costa Mesa area, provides training in a variety of mindfulness techniques,  including mindfulness meditation instruction, and relaxing body awareness practices and gentle yoga type exercises.

Over the 8 week series participants will learn through discussion and exploration to develop an awareness and understanding of stress physiology and the mind body connection. And become proficient in applying a number of mindfulness techniques which they can practice themselves whenever they need, to reduce stress and help with self regulation. Taught by highly experienced teachers who have trained with the Center for Mindfulness at UMASS,  the MBSR-Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program is the most widely researched and highly acclaimed mindfulness program in the world. Since it’s inception in 1979, this program has consistently been shown to produce measurable effects in the areas of stress reduction, emotional regulation, pain management, hypertension, immune response, improved focus, awareness and better communication and overall quality of life. Mindfulness is now being taught at thousands of hospitals, universities and medical centers around the world and the principles of mindfulness have been embraced by a wide range of public and private organizations around the globe.

Our Mindfulness program takes place over 8 weeks, with nine sessions total, including a day long immersion on a Saturday, October 28th, 2017.  No prior meditation or yoga experience necessary.
