Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Winter 2024 Virtual Class
We are offering one MSBR class this Winter. This class is virtual, highly interactive, and experiential.
MBSR is the original mindfulness class developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and is the class studied in most of the research. Participating in MBSR is associated with reductions in stress, pain, depression, anxiety, and chronic unhappiness. MBSR started the current wave of mindfulness-based strategies for coping with a wide range of human struggles.
The class focuses on practicing mindfulness—compassionate awareness of the present moment—in the class and between classes with recommended home practices.
A complimentary Introduction to Mindfulness and MBSR is offered prior to the 8-week course, which includes concepts, principles, and some basic practices. It is required before the MBSR 8-Week course; exceptions are possible with prior experience and/or the teacher’s approval.
The MBSR course follows that Introduction and meets for 8 weeks, for two and one-half hours each week. It includes a retreat between weeks 6 and 7, as well as weekly home practice recommendations.
Wednesday evening class:
Teacher: Brenda Lindsay, CPC, PRP, CPA. MBSR teacher trained through Brown University, Certified Mindfulness Instructor from AIHCP, Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT-200), Council Member of the Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness
