This course is designed to introduce mindfulness meditation as a way of reducing stress, and developing greater balance, ease and fuller participation in your life. Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life including the challenges of stress, pain, illness, change, and everyday demands.
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based program, developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979 and offered at UW Health since 1993. MBSR training entails 28 hours of instruction, through weekly group meetings (2.5-hour classes) and one daylong weekend session. The course includes guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices, gentle stretching, mindful yoga, inquiry and application into experiences of daily living, group dialogue, home assignments and audio recordings.
What is required?
  • A willingness and commitment to take time for yourself each day through a gentle and challenging home practice of meditation and its application in your daily life.
  • Class attendance. Each class includes guided meditation experiences as well as time for reflection and dialogue in a supportive and relaxed environment.
