MBSR - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Learn to meditate by undertaking a regular practice. Over 8 weeks your responses to stress, pain and fatigue are likely to change, as you gain skills to pay attention non-judgmentally to your own experience. Some gentle movement forms part of this program, however options for sitting still are also available.

Mindfulness is more than just a buzzword, it’s an incredibly useful skill to develop.  This eight week course is based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and has been studied around the world for thirty years.  Delivered in all major cancer centres worldwide, MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) is a structured program to take you deep into your own meditation experience.  It has been proven in numerous studies to help with pain management, fatigue and stress, lowering rates of anxiety and depression.  Participants frequently report that they find this program truly life altering. MBSR can help you live well, regardless of your circumstances.  The course also includes a one day silent retreat (see MBSR Day Retreat below for dates).
