8-week MBSR Programme (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction)
Founded in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme is the most successful and well-researched stress reduction programme worldwide. The MBSR programme is specifically designed to support those new to meditation.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programme (MBSR) offers intensive training in formal and informal mindfulness-based practices. It is an approach that combines meditation, dialogue, reflective inquiry and mindful movement as a means of assisting participants to work more effectively with stress, pain and illness as well as the inevitable challenges of life.
Through their own experience people who participate in the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programme learn how to take better care of themselves through the interplay of mind and body – allowing greater access to inner resources for coping, growing and healing.
