Adult 8 week MBSR mindfulness based stress reduction
“Wherever you go, there you are”
― Jon Kabat-Zinn
Our 8-week course is based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Mindfulness; it is something that anyone can do. It is the art to be in the present moment. Other than being in past and future. After all, what else is there? One can worry about the past and the future all they want, but they both are not HERE now, for NOW is here now.
Maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.
It is a skill that you can practice daily, what involves mindfulness meditation training, body awareness and mindful of the body moving.
Over the 8-week program, we will meet 2 hours per week. You will be learning a number of key skills that allow you to tune into and become aware of your experience in the present moment. You will also be establishing a routine of spending time each day by yourself formally practicing Mindfulness meditation. Training your mind to be less reactive. This course provides an opportunity for you to examine and reflects on patterns of your own mind, feelings and actions, and to gently interrupt patterns of self-criticism and unhelpful actions.
Throughout the course, you will learn skills that can increase your ability to:
• Cope with stress, pain, and the challenges of everyday life
• Deal with disturbing events with grace and calmness
• Be fully present and alive in this moment
• Finding a better emotional balance and feeling more alert, stable, clear and peaceful.
Research indicates that mindfulness training can have a significant therapeutic effect for those experiencing stress, anxiety, worry, anger, grief, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, migraines, heart conditions, diabetes and other ailments. In addition, participants typically report feeling more alive, more "in-tune" with themselves and others.
Come join the fun of being fully & mindfully in the moment!
