  • What is Mindfulness?
    Mindfulness means becoming more aware moment-to-moment of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment non-judgementally. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we're sensing in the present moment rather than using habitual patterns of recounting the past or imagining the future.
  • What is MBSR?
    MBSR stands for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. As early as 1979, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center’s Stress Reduction Clinic. At that time they were treating patients that general medicine could not solve such as PTSD from many Veterans coming back from the Vietnam War. Today, MBSR is offered in many hundreds of hospitals, clinics, health centers, educational, management and other settings around the world.The 8-week stress reduction program is based on training in mindfulness practices. It was initially targeted to people with chronic health problems, helping them to cope with the effects of pain, illness and the impact of these conditions on their lives. Today MBSR is taught to people throughout the world who are experiencing challenges in all areas of life. The motivation for many people to enroll in a course begins with a desire to reduce stress and to enrich their lives by becoming more present using the aspects of mindfulness, self - awareness, and a sense of being in touch with oneself and living a more happy, peaceful life.
  • What are the details of the MBSR course?
    The 8 Week MBSR course consists of eight, weekly classes of 2 - 2.5 hours each, plus an all-day session after the sixth week that includes a full day of mindfulness practice in a modified retreat format. Each session starts with a mindfulness exercise that the participants have learned during the weekly sessions. The main exercises of the MBSR program are: - The body scan - Gentle yoga ("Mindful Movement") - Sitting meditation Through the course of the program, participants will practice one or more of these exercises every day.

Each session focuses on one particular topic that is explored with specific exercises, as well as presentations from the teacher and in dialogue among the group participants.

  • What if I have physical or psychological limitations?
    If you suffer from chronic pain or injury first and foremost we will say there are no requirments for anyone to do any of the excercises, postures, or practices as stated. All of the practices and movements are very gentle in their design and nature throughout the entire course. We will guide each partcipant with a sense of "non-striving". There is never a need to push past your own limits unless you choose to do so, and always the option to take rest or sit out of any of the practices. We help many participants find alternative ways to practice. For example, a student with previous back injuries may choose to take a more comfortable position laying down, seated in a chair, or standing up. We honor those wishing to opt out of some of the movement exercises they find challenging or uncomfortable and simply rest in awareness of the breath. Our teachers are trained specifically to work with participants of all physical levels and we never ask anyone to stretch, move, or sit beyond their limits. If concerned please ask your Doctor for more specific advice related to any physical injuries or limitations you might have. In regards to psychological illness or disorders we ask that you please send us an email through out Contact page so we can discuss further. Many accomodations to take the course can stil be made however if you are taking medication, we would need to know more details to properly assess.
