Over the eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, you learn a number of key skills that allow you to tune into and become aware of your experience in the present moment.

Firstly, you establish a routine of spending some time each day by yourself formally practicing mindfulness meditation. By choosing to engage in this practice you will learn how to cultivate deep states of relaxation and well-being. You will also learn how to bring a moment-to-moment awareness to your experience, and then apply this awareness so you can respond – rather than react in habitual ways – to everyday life situations. This becomes much easier to do when you are regularly practicing the formal meditation each day.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course provides an opportunity for you to examine and reflect on the patterns of your own mind, feelings and actions, and to gently interrupt patterns of self-criticism and unhelpful actions.

We learn how to accept and embrace the full range of experience that life inevitably brings – pleasurable, joyful and expansive experience as well as painful conditions in their various forms – worry, anxiety, tension, impatience, anger, grief, sadness and even despair. Moving towards these conditions with an inquiring attitude, rather than trying to hold on to them, or to escape or avoid them, can bring some surprising and refreshing results.

Following is an outline of the eight-week MBSR program –
