This 8 Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course offers a highly effective approach to reducing the negative impact of stress on our health, relationships, and peace of mind, while increasing our capacity to handle daily challenges with confidence and ease. Mindfulness meditation techniques are taught and practiced in a supportive class environment. This program has been taught and researched for over 35 years in top medical centers. It has been found to provide benefit for a number of stress-related issues, notably chronic pain, several health conditions, and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Classes begin Tuesday, October 24 and will be held from 5-7 pm on Tuesdays (note that the Tuesday, October 31 class will be moved to Wednesday, Nov 1). In addition, an all-day retreat on Saturday, Dec 2 will be held from 9am-3:30pm.
Participants must commit to the entire 8-week program. Practice outside of class is an important part of the program's effectiveness. The cost is $240 by the first day of class for the 8 weeks of classes, plus day long retreat or $40 per class, if paying session-to-session.
