MBSR 8-week Class and Retreat

MBSR 8-week Class includes weekly class sessions, as well as a 6-hour silent teacher-led retreat. Weekly sessions include meditation training and practice; yoga training and practice; inquiry discussion; working with pleasant and unpleasant events; mindful communication, and an overview of the research. Additionally, we increase awareness of our stress reactivity patterns and our ability to respond to stressors rather than react in habitual ways. All practices are designed to increase present moment awareness.
The 6-hour silent retreat provides an opportunity to deepen our mindfulness practices.

Work-Based Mindfulness Program

Work-Based Mindfulness Program brings mindfulness practices into the workplace. The Work-Based Mindfulness (WBM) is the 8-week MBSR methodology modified for direct application in the workplace. This program consists of 8 one-hour weekly sessions plus a 2-hour retreat for staff to learn and practice mindfulness skills to reduce stress and improve effectiveness on the job. Skills taught and practiced include centering, meditation, and office yoga with a focus on reducing workplace stress. 

The Work-Based Mindfulness Program is offered in the greater Omaha area to a wide range of businesses including social service agencies, healthcare settings, and corporate offices. The WBM Program can be offered at the start of the day, lunchtime, or afternoon based on your organization's needs. We come to your workplace! Summary outcome data measuring level of stress, depression, anxiety, and productivity can be performed. 

The Work-Based Mindfulness program is currently being offered at One World Community Medical Center for lead medical staff. Staff are loving it!
