Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

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

Layering stresses from your personal and professional life on top of things like the 24/7 news cycle and political upheaval can put your body in a constant state of red-alert. This instinctual survival response can be helpful if you’re being chased by a tiger, but not if you’re trying to get dinner on the table! Learn to check in with your body to identify what causes you stress and where you hold tension, then use practical techniques to reduce that stress on a regular basis. Decades of research show that this 8-week course makes structural changes in the brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy, and compassion, measurably reducing stress in just eight weeks. And who doesn’t want that?

This is for you if you:

- Often feel tense, anxious, and/or overwhelmed
- Have trouble sleeping; you “can’t turn off your brain”
- Would like to reduce or replace harmful coping mechanisms like overeating or excessive screentime with healthier habits
