Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is widely recognised as the world’s gold standard mindfulness training. It is a comprehensive in depth 8 week mindfulness program focused on working with the challenges and stress in your life wherever you find it.We have been teaching MBSR in the Canberra region for over 15 years.

Experience in the practice of mindfulness meditation sits at the core of this program. You will learn about the practice of mindfulness meditation, ways of integrating mindfulness into your daily life and working with difficult thoughts, emotions and behaviours and stress physiology. The course enables participants to experience the benefits of mindfulness meditation with a strong dash of science delivered in a grounded, guided structure.

MBSR is the well researched program developed in 1979 by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre. It has been featured twice on Catalyst, the ABC Science Program – The Mindfulness Experiment in 2019 and Meditation: Can it really change you? in 2016 and also in the 2020 film ‘My Year of Living Mindfully ‘. Research on the impact of mindfulness on health, mental health, performance, relationships and wellbeing is now prolific and growing exponentially. Much of this research has been based on or inspired by the 8 week MBSR program.

To benefit fully from the program it is important to make a commitment to attend all classes, including the all day retreat, and to undertake a daily meditation practice for the eight weeks.

Teacher: Your teacher in term 4 will be Trevor Heldt. Trevor is an experienced facilitator of our MBSR Program, and has led a number of Simply Mindful retreats and graduate practice groups. After you register Trevor will be in contact with you to arrange a short individual pre-course meeting. You will also receive course details in your registration email.
