This 8-Week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction course (MBSR) is a clinically proven Intervention based on the acclaimed work of Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn (University of Massachusetts Medical Centre).
The Skills of Mindfulness: Over the 2½ hour 8 weekly sessions + Full-Day retreat, Mindfulness is taught through a gentle blend of formal and informal meditations- (body scan meditation, sitting meditations, 3-step breathing space, body awareness and mindful movement practices), short presentations, group exercises and discussions.
All Participants receive a detailed MBSR guidebook and CDs of the three meditation practices. *It is important to note that the main ‘work’ of the course is accomplished by you at home supported by the CDs/Downloads. This requires devoting approximately 40 minutes per day to home practice.
About 47% of waking hours is spent thinking about what isn’t going on- That’s a lot of time spent in Distraction! As an alternative, Mindfulness is about paying attention to present moment experience with open curiosity and a willingness to be with what is.
