Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an in-depth eight week course in Mindfulness Meditation and integrating mindfulness skills into daily life. Mindfulness cultivates our potential to be present each moment with kind, open and non-judgmental awareness and effectively manage a variety of stress-related conditions including anxiety, chronic pain, headaches, high blood pressure, and sleep disturbance. This program is based on the pioneering work of Jon Kabat-Zinn Ph.D. at UMass Medical Center, and is considered to be one of the most reliable ways to learn how to use mindfulness to form new skills for living well and enjoying life, regardless of it's ups and downs.

Live life more fully and resourcefully
Increase ability to handle stress with greater ease
Enhance ability to manage chronic pain and other chronic conditions
