Join Amy Zoe Schonhoff for this in-depth experience of MBSR.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), an 8-week course in mindful living, was developed in the late 70’s by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. MBSR has been found to positively and often profoundly affect participants’ ability to reduce medical symptoms and psychological distress while learning to live life more fully.
Over the duration of the course, MBSR participants are introduced to the key principles of mindfulness, provided with instruction for formal and informal practices, and engage in short talks and discussions. With a commitment to involvement, both within and outside of class, participants are pointed towards practices that integrate mindfulness into their daily life.
