What is MBSR?

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week stress reduction class designed to help students understand personal patterns of stress reactivity through the use of mindfulness practices. Mindful awareness can change the way we respond to stress in our lives.

MBSR starts at the beginning. No previous meditation or yoga experience required! Both experienced and novice students report the training supports their growth and healing.

      Students will learn and practice:

  • Mindfulness Meditation – learn new methods or deepen your practice
  • Mindful yoga
  • Everyday mindful activities such as mindful eating and mindful noticing

What is Mindfulness?

• Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: On purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.
(J. Kabat-Zinn, 1994).

• Knowing what you are doing while you are doing it is the essence of mindfulness practice.
(J. Kabat-Zinn, 2013).

• Meditation is synonymous with the practice of non-doing. We aren’t practicing to make things perfect or to do things perfectly. Rather, we practice to grasp and realize (make real for ourselves) the fact that things already are perfect, perfectly what they are.
(J. Kabat-Zinn, 1994)
