About MBSR for individuals

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is one of the most researched curriculums for learning about the efficacy of mindfulness training to alleviate stress concurrent with medical conditions.

Due to my training with University of Massachusetts’ Center for Mindfulness, and my dedication to experiential learning, all of our classes are MBSR inspired. Whether you choose an introductory class or the full 8 week course, you will encounter themes, practices, and inquiry-based dialogue that embody the MBSR spirit.

The formal mindfulness practices taught and practiced in our classes build a foundation for the weaving moment to moment awareness and creative responding into everyday living. This is when the rubber hits the road and your presence of mind, body, and heart matter most! By exercising the “awareness muscle” during moments of relative calm and during times of stress, you are bolstering attentional capacity, supporting emotional regulation, and opening a door to valuable self-knowledge, a powerful tool in and of itself for acceptance, growth, and change.

Benefits

Research has supported a variety of potential benefits from practicing mindfulness. With a daily 30 min practice, some studies found changes in the brain in as little as two weeks  (Davidson, et la).
