Discover the power and benefits of mindfulness Meditation through the 8 Week MBSR program
There are many ways to learn meditation, but the 8-week course format is an ideal starting point, as it is the most widely-researched and evidence-based approach. The 8-week format is also an opportunity to make a commitment to showing up and building a regular practice over a series of weeks. It takes this kind of repetition over time to form new patterns of thinking and habits. You will also find that learning to mediate in a group with others and under the guidance of an experienced mindfulness teacher will provide you with a good source of insight and support.
The 8-week course is based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the late 1970s, and includes components of the related Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) program that explicitly address the negative thought patterns that can perpetuate stress and lead to depression and anxiety.
This fundamental course explores the essential mindfulness meditation exercises and helps cultivate new skillful ways of dealing with what goes on in our bodies, minds and lives. In addition to the meditation exercises there is information (and discussion) on healing stress, relaxation, stress management, and how to apply mindfulness to interpersonal communication.
Beyond the course, living a mindful life means applying these mindfulness skills to each part of our daily lives.
