MBSR is the mindfulness class developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn which has been extensively researched and found helpful in coping with stress, pain, depression, anxiety, and chronic unhappiness. It started the current wave of mindfulness-based strategies for coping with a wide range of human problems. The class focuses on practicing mindfulness—compassionate awareness of the present moment—in the class and between classes.
Meeting weekly for 2.5 hours for 8 weeks, participants learn through guided meditations, discussions, daily mindfulness practices, and a half-day retreat. The course fee is $300 (scholarships available), which includs recordings of guided meditations, handouts, and the retreat.
