Mindfulness is a way of relating directly to whatever is happening in your life, meeting your experience skillfully and with an open heart. Mindfulness training is an antidote to the habitual response patterns that lock us into routines that undermine emotional and physical health. This series will help you gain an ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations and enhance physical, emotional and social wellbeing. People participate in MBSR for a variety of diverse reasons such as stress (job, family, financial, etc.), chronic pain or illness, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Formal weekly practice is a component of the series.
