An 6-week program entitled “Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management will be offered to adults who live with chronic illness / stress and/or are health care professionals (physicians, nurses, psychologists) who care for people with mental and physical health problems.

It is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) originated by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the USA several decades ago, and has been developed into a trauma-sensitive programme that is more customized to the needs of those dealing with chronic painor stress.


What will I learn?

Attendees learn the principles of mindfulness meditation, the importance of living in the moment, and the power of now, and how these relate to suffering less suffering or stress. Mindfulness assists in remaining calmer and more stress and pain controlled despite the challenges of everyday life, such as when interacting with family, friends, colleagues, employers and insurers. This can change the intensity of suffering, both emotional and physical, in a very positive way. Life skills are also enhanced in this course. Consistent attendance is required to remain in the course.Une participation régulière à tous les cours est nécessaire pendant la durée du programme.

Included in the Program:

  • guided meditation audios

  • training manual.
