Description
Mindfulness isn't just a buzzword. It's proven to help reduce stress, chronic pain and a range of other life issues. Stress can become overwhelming and when left unmanaged compromises the overall health of one's body. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) gives you proven techniques for living in the present and reducing the worries and fears that cause unnecessary stress. Learn the science and application of mind-body medicine to promote resilience and healing. This course gets rave reviews from participants!

Our 8-week MBSR course is based on the highly acclaimed program of Dr. Jon Kabat -Zinn. Improve your focus, combat stress and become more resilient to unpredictable life events.
