Mindfullness for Stress Reduction and Well-Being

This 6-week experiential class series is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a course on mindfulness practice and stress reduction developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMass Medical School in 1979. It is the oldest and most studied mindfulness curriculum for general improvements in health and well-being. The technique was originally developed for use in hospitals with patients suffering from painful, chronic, or disabling conditions. It was found that following participation in an MBSR program, participants' levels of anxiety and depression decreased and their sense of well-being increased. Extensive research has shown that the Stress Reduction Program can be beneficial for anyone, regardless of state of health. It is a course that helps participants draw on their own inner resources and actively engage in caring for themselves and finding greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.
