Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

MBSR is an empirically-supported psycho-educational group program to reduce
stress and develop capacity for greater calm.

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 September 25, 2024

Orientation & Session 1:  September 25th, 6-9pm ET

Sessions 2-8:  October 2nd – November 13th, 6-8:30pm ET

Silent Retreat:  November 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.

Feedback from the previous participants

"I took the MBSR session with Paul in the Spring of 2022, and it had a huge impact on my life. I had been struggling with some stress-related health complications, and the strategies and awareness I learned with Paul’s guidance helped me tremendously."
