Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
This course consists of training in mindful
awareness, gentle movement, and group support. The program is designed for
people who want less stress and more balance and healthy living in day-to-day
qualities of awareness translate into tangible results such as better
concentration and focus, more self-knowledge and self-direction, better ability
to handle social situations, and less physical symptoms of stress such as stomachaches, tiredness and headaches.
This course is modeled after the
mindfulness-based stress-reduction work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., from the
University of Massachusetts Medical Center and featured in Bill Moyer's
television series "Healing and the Mind."
