Why take this Course?

Many of us are feeling overwhelmed by a tsunami of anxiety, fear and uncertainty. Mindfulness brings awareness to what is unfolding moment to moment and offers us a path toward resilience, healing and greater wellbeing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn more than 40 years ago. MBSR is an evidence based program which has been at the center of research for many years. It has been shown to enhance resilience and reduce stress related effects for many people around the world.

We are two MBSR teachers from the United States and Slovenia, collaborating internationally to offer MBSR online live to the global community. We hope to offer valuable opportunities for participants from around the world to cultivate mindfulness together.

We welcome participants from all walks of life and all countries.

About us

We are two MBSR teachers trained at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and at the Mindfulness Center, Brown University’s School of Public Health. We had the privilege of training directly with Florence Meleo-Meyer, Lynn Koerbel, Saki Santorelli and Judson Brewer, among others.

As we live through this pandemic, we realize how interconnected we really are. We are also acutely aware of how dependent we are on each other for our well being and survival.

While we are from different social and cultural backgrounds, through our mindfulness practice, we understand our common humanity and experience. We also discovered that it is possible to deeply connect with and support one another virtually despite our geographical separation.

In forming a collaborative to bring together our varied experience and differing cultural insights we believe we can offer participants a unique learning experience and the opportunity to participate in and benefit from this global community.

What is mindfulness?

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non- judgmentally.”

-Jon Kabat Zinn

What is MBSR?

Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the MBSR program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979.

It has been time tested over these many years. Extensive scientific research has found that the practice of the MBSR method is associated with reducing physical and psychological suffering, strengthening resilience and fostering greater wellbeing and health.

The benefits include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Improved self care
  • Better able to manage anxiety and depression
  • Dealing with negative habits and thinking
  • Improvement in symptoms of burnout
  • Learning how to approach difficult and unwanted thoughts and feelings from a different perspective
  • Learning how to be present and appreciate the simple pleasures of everyday life, connect with yourself, and the experience of being alive

MBSR training teaches us how to wake up and become aware of ourselves. It is through this awareness that we can learn to temper our reactions to stressful events and change our experience.

The participants are systematically trained in formal and informal mindfulness meditation practices and presence in life through:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
  • Gentle mindful movement
  • Group dialogue
  • Lessons in applying mindfulness to everyday life
  • Online resource materials and video conferencing.

You must be willing to make a strong commitment to attend all classes and to practice daily home assignments for eight weeks.
