Developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a mindfulness-based program that teaches students skills to manage the multiple stressors in their lives. Research on MBSR suggests that it supports wellbeing. This course combines mindfulness meditation practices, mindful movement (gentle yoga/walking), discussion, reflection and a teaching on the application of a Mindfulness concept to everyday life.

Each class is very experiential with here and now mindfulness meditation practices that help participants develop the ability to embody mindful awareness in their daily lives.

Participants are expected to practice the learned mindfulness skills daily. These daily practices take a minimum of 25 minutes, with a recommendation to gradually increase the practice time to 45 minutes a day. Remember, the more you practice the easier it can be to integrate the skills learned in the course into your daily life.


MBSR Fall 2017 will be Wednesdays 4:30-7:00pm from 9/29/17 to 11/29/17.

No class on 10/4 or 11/22/

On Saturday, Nov 4th, there will be a full day retreat held at the Indian Creek Recreation Area.
