What is Mindfulness-Based Stress
Reduction (MBSR)?
The purpose of MBSR is to learn, explore, experience, and practice mindfulness practices in a group setting and at home. These practices are designed to increase our present moment awareness and to use this awareness to approach the stress in our lives differently.

Who is this for?
MBSR is a time and research-tested method for:
• Bringing greater ease into one’s life and learning to live more fully
• Assisting individuals with physical concerns such as chronic pain, cancer, cardiac and stress-related disorders, and emotional concerns
• Reducing anxiety and depression
• Assisting those dealing with life transitions

What can I expect when I come?
In MBSR class, we will learn
• Mindfulness meditation practices
• Mindfulness activities in everyday life
• Body centered mindfulness
• Yoga
• Walking meditation
• The MBSR Stress model
At home, you will practice daily 45-60 minutes with guidance from in-class practice, MBSR manual and audio recordings of the practices. Home practice is key to learning, deepening your growth, and learning to manage your stress differently.
