Description

What You will Learn

Research Based Mindfulness that Actually Works

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was developed in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center of Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts Medical School. Kabat-Zinn’s research between 1979 and 2002 focused on mind/body interactions for healing; on various clinical applications of mindfulness meditation training for people with chronic pain and/or stress-related disorders; on the effects of MBSR on the brain and how it processes emotions, particularly under stress, and on the immune system.

 

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a way of learning to pay attention in a sustained and particular way, on purpose, in the present moment to whatever is happening in your life. 

“Mindfulness can only be understood from the inside out. It is not one more cognitive-behavioural technique to be deployed in a behavior change paradigm, but a way of being and a way of seeing that has profound implications for understanding the nature of our own minds and bodies, and for living life as if it really mattered.” Jon Kabat-Zinn, 2003. Mindfulness-based interventions in context: Past, present, and future. Clinical Psychology Science and Practice 10:144-56.
