Description

Mindfulness-based Stress Resilience: Foundations in meditation grounded in gratitude, generosity, gentleness, and grace.

Thursdays, March 1 through March 22, 11:30 am-1:30 pm
*Meditation Retreat: Saturday March 17, 9:30-3:30 pm

Mindfulness-based Stress Resilience is a 4-week interactive educational program informed by the teaching, research, and design of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is an evidence-based program that’s taught in major health centers worldwide, as designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. Like all skills, the skills of mindfulness and wellbeing require practice, so this education offering unfolds over four weeks.

Kay also teaches the full 8-week MBSR program at Shallowford, so if you’re interested in future 8-week classes, contact Kay Stewart.
