Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was originally designed over 35 years ago by Jon Kabat-Zin, PhD at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Worcester, and is practiced in more than 250 hospitals across the United States. Neurophysiological studies have shown increased brain growth and function in as little as 8 weeks of MBSR practice. Research shows decreased stress, improved self-image, and improved emotion regulation. Improved concentration and less anxiety are common outcomes.
We are delighted to be able to offer these classes online via Zoom. Summer I Classes meet Wednesday mornings and Friday evenings with an "All Day" retreat the last Saturday before the end of class.
“MBSR, and the MBSR community, have always been there for me when I needed them most. Great thanks to the good people at UW Health and the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and the Center for Mindfulness at Brow University for their kind and patient instruction. It is an honor to be offering this class series, to which I personally owe so very much.”
