MINDFULNESS BASED STRESS REDUCTION (MBSR)
8-Week training program on reducing stress for life

UPCOMING DATES:
TBA

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week program in partnership with Chrysalis Institute of Richmond that uses mindfulness practices such as meditation techniques, gentle yoga and information about brain science and behavior patterns to help us understand how/why we react to stress and how to better manage it in our lives.  MBSR was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979 and has been offered in hospitals and therapy centers throughout the world ever since. Many research studies over the past several decades have shown that this program can be of significant benefit to those suffering with stress and anxiety. This offering is best suited for adults over the age of 18 and is not meant to ‘treat’ or ‘cure’ those with severe anxiety or depression. 

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?  A MENTAL PROCESS THAT CREATES A STATE OF AWARENESS ACHIEVED BY FOCUSING ONE'S BEING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT, WHILE CALMLY ACKNOWLEDGING AND ACCEPTING ONE'S FEELINGS, THOUGHTS, AND BODILY SENSATIONS. MINDFULNESS HAS BEEN SHOWN TO INCREASE SELF-CONTROL, ENHANCE FLEXIBILITY, IMPROVE CONCENTRATION AND MENTAL CLARITY, IMPROVE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE ABILITY TO RELATE TO OTHERS AND ONE'S SELF WITH KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE AND COMPASSION.
