Developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is the core program of the Mindfulness Center. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a practice-based, interactive learning program. Research shows MBSR to be an effective complement to a wide variety of medical and psychological conditions. These include anxiety, asthma, cancer, chronic pain, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disease, hypertension, mood disorders, sleep disturbances, and stress disorders. MBSR classes include instruction in mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, and other mindfulness practices. These practices remind us to return to the present moment and increase the opportunity to make conscious choices rather than react unconsciously.

Classes meet weekly for 2.5 hours over an 8-week period. The course also includes an all-day silent retreat, usually on the Saturday of the 6th week.
