Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): Developing and Cultivating a Mindful Presence
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, or MBSR program is a way to integrate the Spiritual Practice of Mindfulness into daily life: learning to walk the contemplative path with practical feet. Mindfulness is a quality of awareness that develops with regular practice; as we pay attention on purpose in the present moment, non-judgmentally, to life as it really is.
The MBSR program supports overall health enhancement, emotional resilience, and increase calm for people from all walks of life. In this eight-week, nine session program (includes a retreat), you will learn “Present Moment Awareness” which research shows can sustain concentration, create clarity, and support overall well being.
