Course Description

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program originally designed over thirty years ago by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. The course has a basis in eastern psychology and is very applicable to modern secular life. Mindfulness is the practice of sustained focus, self-regulation, self-exploration, and self-liberation with an accepting, open and kind attitude. This practice can produce calmness and expanded awareness. Neurophysiological studies have shown increased brain growth and function in areas of emotional control and executive function in as little as 8 weeks. Research shows decreased stress, improved self-image, and improved emotional regulation. Improved concentration and less anxiety are common outcomes.
