Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Why I am doing this?
I took MBSR in 2011 to help manage my own stress and anxiety. I am very glad I took it and want to share the incredible power of mindfulness with others to help them become more resilient and lead happier lives.
What is MBSR?
Mindfulness-based stress reduction, aka “MBSR” is a curriculum developed by mindfulness pioneer Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn when he was at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
MBSR is unique. It teaches various practices that lead to present-moment awareness, such as sitting (or standing) meditation and mindful movement. It then moves on to how the mind and body deal with stress and teaches a mindfulness strategy for turning our reactions into more skillful responses.
The course runs for eight consecutive weeks. Each session lasts around 2,5 hours. That may sound like a lot but trust me, it goes quickly. It also includes a four-hour silent “retreat” between sessions six and seven which is a real highlight for many.
The next course starts on January 23, 2024
Orientation & Session 1: January 23rd, 6pm – 9pm ET
Sessions 2-8: January 30th – March 12th, 6pm – 8:30pm ET
Silent Retreat: March 2nd, 10am – 2pm ET
The course will be offered online.
The fee for the program is $395 plus HST. Anyone undergoing financial hardship is welcome to pay what you can.
