What will be covered?
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was developed in 1979, by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. MBSR seeded the mindfulness movement which is now found all over the world bringing mindfulness to medicine, psychology, education, science, business, and government.
Mindfulness is the practice of cultivating non-judgmental awareness in day-to-day life. Mindfulness develops the potential to experience each moment, no matter how difficult or intense, with serenity and clarity. One can feel more alive and gain access to the powerful inner resources for healing. MBSR consists of intensive training in mindfulness meditation, gentle mindful movement and group support.
