Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

  • Chrysalis Institute 213 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

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.

Silent Retreat Day
A silent retreat day is part of the MBSR curriculum and included in the price. The silent retreat is an opportunity to deepen your formal practice in a safe and supportive environment. We will practice all of the formal meditations we've offered in class (sitting, walking, body scan) as well as a few others.  We will also offer a mindful movement practice and an opportunity to practice mindful eating.  This can be seen as a time for you to focus on caring for yourself.  Bring comfortable clothes and an open mind (no cell phones, please).  Please bring a water bottle and lunch.  Tea and coffee will be available.  

Retreat Date: Saturday, August 18 from 9:30am-2:30pm

She learned how to manage her anxiety surrounding the diagnosis through exercise, nutrition and practicing mindfulness.
