Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Evening Series
The 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program is designed to help you cope more effectively with both long and short term stressors. Developed by Jon Kabit-Zinn from the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, MBSR has been scientifically proven to enhance the ability to manage and reduce pain levels, and improve focus, resilience and the capacity to recover more quickly from challenging life events. Taught by approved and certified teachers of MBSR, we now offer both a morning and evening class. Instruction involves mindful meditation practices, discussion, gentle stretching and yoga (appropriate for all ability levels).

Participation is required on: Wednesday, September 5, 5:30-7:00 pm (Orientation) Saturday, October 20, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm (Retreat)
