Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a comprehensive 8 week program focused on working with the stress in your life wherever you find it.
Experience in the practice of mindfulness meditation sits at the core of this program. You will learn about the practice of mindfulness meditation, stress physiology, the stress cycle, ways of integrating mindfulness into your daily life and working with difficult thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
MBSR is the well researched program developed in 1979 by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic 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. Research on the impact of mindfulness on health, mental health, performance, relationships and wellbeing is now prolific. 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 2 will be Megan. After you register she will be in contact with you to arrange a brief individual pre-course meeting. You will also be contacted by us and sent a link a few weeks before the program starts.
