MMP Programs Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction About the Course
MBSR is an eight-week course scientifically designed to teach participants how to integrate and apply mindfulness both in their everyday lives and to the range of challenges arising from life stresses.
In this intensive training you will learn to access and cultivate your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself and finding greater balance, ease and peace of mind.
Throughout the program you will be working with your own stress, pain and illness – and the challenges and demands of your everyday life. Learning will focus on your own experience of how practicing meditation and mindfulness-based self-regulatory skills creates emotional and mental resilience by developing and refining your own internal resources which is the primary aim of the program.

Are you curious about mindfulness as a means of improving your health and resiliency, your work and play? Would you like to learn how to reset your distractibility button and live more fully at ease in the moment?
In this 3-hour workshop, offered in two 1.5 hour sessions, we’ll introduce the primary practices of mindfulness, learn about the scientific and cultural roots of these practices, and have time for a hands on experiential immersion.
It may be when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work. And that when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.
