What is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) ?
✤ “Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.” Quote by: Jon Kabat-Zinn
✤ For most of us, when this happens, it’s unexpected, maybe while walking on a mountain trail on a crisp autumn day, or being so focused in work or play that you are not thinking about past or future, or connecting with someone in a way that makes it seem like time is standing still. This state of being alive and whole in the present moment is always available, but it typically eludes us, especially in times of difficulty and external pressures.
✤ “Mindfulness” is used in many contexts nowadays and there are many different understandings of the term. My favourite definition: “Paying attention to present moment experience with open curiosity and a willingness to be with what is.” Quote by: Diana Winston of UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Centre
✤ Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a blend of meditation, body awareness, and yoga: learning through practice and study how your body handles (and can resolve) stress neurologically.
What will taking an MBSR course do for me?
Through this MBSR course, you will learn skills that can increase your ability to:
✤ Cope with stress, pain, and the challenges of everyday life
✤ Deal with disturbing events with grace and composure
✤ Be fully present and alive in this moment
While MBSR is not a “cure” for serious medical conditions and should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, research indicates that mindfulness training can have a significant therapeutic effect for those experiencing stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, migraines, heart conditions, diabetes and other ailments. In addition, participants typically report feeling more alive, more “in-tune” with themselves and others.
