Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you — consciously and systematically working with your own stress, illness, and the challenges and demands of everyday life. The MBSR course schedule consists of eight weekly classes and one day-long class on a Saturday. This highly participatory, practical course includes:
Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
- Gentle stretching and mindful yoga
- Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life
- Daily home assignments
- A CD of 4 home practices and a home practice manual
NOTE: If you are an individual living with chronic pain, please be aware that we have a mindfulness class that is specifically designed for your situation (please refer to MAPPS groups on our website).
When: Tuesdays from 5:30-8 p.m. August 25–Oct 20.
