MBSR is an evidence-based intervention, and an 8- week course that supports students in diving deeply into the integration of mindfulness in everyday life. It is based on the work of Jon Kabat Zinn, and supports participants in learning to “pay attention, on purpose, in the present moment, as non-judgmentally as possible” (Jon Kabat-Zinn). This type of awareness can be developed and harnessed to cultivate clarity, increase acceptance, and support positive behavior and lifestyle changes. These are critical factors for people of all walks of life to live fully and skillfully.Read more about MBSR
The course was originally developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center almost 40 years ago and continues to build favorable findings and outcomes. It still works and is now available in hospitals, clinics, workplaces, and community settings across the country, and the world.
