MBSR is an approach to self-care that can assist in managing stress, pain, and illness. The practice of mindfulness is used to help people learn to focus awareness on body sensations, thoughts and emotions in a non-judgemental way. MBSR is based on the work of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, medical professor and developer of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and is offered as a practice based 4 week course for anyone in the community. Whether attending out of interest or having experienced mindfulness instruction in the past, all are welcome and all will benefit. MBSR will help you let go of the past, worry less about the future and live more fully in the present!
