Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a powerful 8-week class that teaches how to use mindfulness to make lasting changes and leave behind unhealthy stressful reactivity. This wonderful program has been around for 40+ years and has helped tens of thousands of people learn how to live with less suffering and more joy and empowerment. You will learn various mindfulness practices — meditation and gentle movement like yoga and qigong — which become a go-to strategy when stress arises. We learn together in the weekly class, and practice daily with guided meditations and simple reflection exercises. This program has a very positive track record, proven through peer-reviewed studies.

This course runs on consecutive Sunday afternoons from 1:30-4:00 pm, PLUS a one-day retreat on a Saturday (from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm). Participants are expected to attend on all dates (some exceptions may apply).

We’ll assess what we’ve gone through in 2017, and set some intentions for 2018.
