What is MBSR?
In 1979, Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center to integrate meditation into the medical mainstream. His approach became known as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) – a powerful, effective way to reduce physical and mental suffering by cultivating ease, and peace of mind. The MBSR Home Study Course is a comprehensive immersion in this method. You’ll learn to understand and moderate your reactivity to stressful situations, reduce the impact of long-term stress and trauma, cope more effectively with physical pain and discomfort, and increase your overall sense of vitality and life enthusiasm. You´ll get a wide range of practical skills that increase resilience and heighten your capacity to effectively meet your life challenges.
MBSR method cultivates an open and nonjudgmental way to any present-moment situation. It´s nonsectarian, scientifically researched approach that is in harmony with any faith-based tradition.
