MBSR: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program



MBSR English.001


MBSR is an 8-week evidence-based, experiential program designed to provide participants with intensive and systematic training in mindfulness and mindful movement practices, and integrating into one’s daily life what is discovered and learned through the process of participating in the program. It integrates practices and group exercises to promote resilience, emotional and attentional regulation and self-awareness, well-being and physical health.


Mindfulness Based-Stress Reduction (MBSR) is based on ancient contemplative practices integrated with western medical approaches by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979. MBSR is an 8-week program of systematic training in mindfulness  employing both formal and informal practices. The experiential program harnesses inner resources and cultivates resilience.


MBSR has been researched over 40 years and consistently delivers positive outcomes associated with increased self-awareness and emotional and attentional regulation. In addition, outcomes have included reductions in symptoms for various physical and behavioral health conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, chronic pain, and hypertension.


Throughout the program you will be consciously and systematically working with the challenges of your everyday life. Our certified instructor will create a safe and supportive environment for this process and learning to take place through:


  • Systematic instruction in formal and informal MBSR meditation practices, including guided instruction and recordings to practice with at home

  • The opportunity for one-on-one check-ins with instructors throughout the course
