Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, (MBSR)--developed over 40 years ago by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School--is an evidence-based 8-week, 9-session training in mindfulness awareness.

We meet weekly for 2.5 hours with an all-day Saturday session towards the end of the course. Guided instruction in various mindfulness practices is provided, including sitting and walking meditation, the body scan, gentle yoga, and other guided meditations. These practices are enhanced through inquiry exercises, group dialogue, daily home assignments, guided audio files, and practice materials--each week building upon the previous.
