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 it can compromise your overall health. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaches 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. Based on the highly acclaimed program of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, this 8-session class will help you improve focus, combat stress, and become more resilient to unpredictable life events. This course gets rave reviews from participants!

This class includes a silent retreat day. We'll practice formal meditations learned in class (sitting, walking, body scan) as well as mindful movement and mindful eating practices. All you need are comfortable clothes and an open mind (no cell phones please!). Please bring a water bottle and afternoon snack. Tea and coffee will be available.
