About this Event

Are you interested in gaining introductory knowledge of the 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program? If so join me for this 3hr Workshop!

MBSR was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and Associates in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society. The 8 week course stems from the ever expanding field of Mind-Body-Medicine, becoming internationally renowned as a result of the evidence-based research that highlights its benefit in treating a variety of mental and physical health issues among several populations.

You will learn:

*An introductory on what mindfulness is and what it isn’t

*Formal and informal meditation techniques
