About Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Learn how to take better care of yourself through the interplay of mind and body - and mobilizing your own inner resources for coping, growing and healing. The original 8-week MBSR training brings a form of meditation known as mindfulness into the mainstream.
In the MBSR program, you will learn to access and cultivate your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself and find greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.
