The mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) course is designed to help participants create and sustain their own mindfulness practice. In this live, online course you can take part wherever you are. This entire course will be online and interactive.
MBSR is a well-researched course which is quite intensive in nature: participants are asked to commit to attending the Orientation, then a weekly class, plus 45-60 minutes of mindfulness practice six days a week, for eight weeks. An ‘all day’ retreat is a key part of the course and will take place between classes 6 and 7.
The course provides a supportive foundation of formal mindfulness techniques and less formal practices, in a small group. Through the course participants deepen their awareness of the relationship between mind and body, and grow their inner resources for coping and healing, learning how to take better care of themselves.
The in-person MBSR course was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at University of Massachusetts Medical School and is offered to complement rather than replace traditional medical and psychological treatments - read more about MBSR here.
