Fall 2017 : Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Join us for this experiential 6-week series featuring contemplative practices from around the world. Held at the University’s iconic Rotunda.
Mon. Sep 25, 2017 - Mon. Nov 13, 2017 (8 weeks)
Every Monday from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (University of Massachusetts) in 1979, MBSR is now taught in every state in the U.S. and in more than 30 countries. MBSR classes include instruction in mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, and other mindfulness practices, all guided by a skilled instructor.
For the program to be effective, your commitment to 45 minutes of daily practice and active participation in all classes as well as the daylong retreat is key. The 8-week course meets for 2.5 hours weekly. The all-day silent retreat, which is held on a Saturday toward the end of the course, provides an opportunity for participants to experience more deeply the mindfulness techniques learned in class.
Instructor: Susan Stone
Daylong Retreat: Saturday, October 28, 2017
