Mindfulness is not something that you have to “get” or acquire. It is already within you – a deep internal resource available and patiently waiting to be reawakened and used in the service of learning, growing, and healing.
Mindfulness is the intention to pay attention to each and every moment of our life, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness involves purposeful action and focused attention grounded in the current experience and held with a sense of curiosity.
My 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR) is appropriate for individuals who are interested in being an active participant in changes toward health and a greater sense of well-being. This course meets for 2.5 hours per week, with one all-day session following the 6th week, and requires at least 45 min of practice at home daily.
Persons experiencing stress, chronic disease, panic, anxiety, pain, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, trauma, stroke, cancer as well as other acute and chronic medical conditions may find MBSR to be a powerful compliment to medical management.
MBSR is useful for persons in need of stress reduction in relationships, parenting, family and work.
