Mindfulness: 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.
This program is highly structured and experiential. The practice utilizes meditative disciplines and movement, but extracts the techniques from the cultural and religious settings in which they may have evolved. The course will guide you through the major techniques with explicit instructions and directions on how to practice them. It will outline the latest research findings in the field of behavioral medicine as a backdrop for understanding how the practice of mindfulness is related to physiology, psychology and medical well-being.
We will explore what stress is and how our awareness and understanding of it can offer alternatives so that we might manage stress carefully. The program will provide specific information about utilizing mindfulness in a wide variety of situations you find stressful including medical symptoms, emotional pain, panic, anxiety, relationships, time pressures, food stress, work stress, and others.
Finally practical suggestions for maintaining the program as a daily part of life are offered in an effort to promote mindfulness as a perspective on all aspects of daily life.Mindfulness is an active area of research with many studies focusing on the positive structural and functional changes in the brain due to completion of an MBSR program. Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Stress Reduction Program in 1979 and it has been offered around the world since then.
