What is the Eight week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course?

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an experiential training program that runs over a period of eight weeks. The training typically takes place in a supportive group setting, providing a community of learning, practice and motivation. Meetings are held once each week with one full day of practice towards the end of the eight weeks. The classes consist of theory and discussion introducing the key ideas of mindfulness, together with gentle practical exercises, that will empower you to ‘be in the present moment’ and to experience what it is to be mindful. As you follow the curriculum, and practice for 20-40 minutes each day, you will progressively build and develop your mindfulness skills. Then naturally you will begin to integrate what you have learned into your everyday life.
