Learn practical ways to manage stress

What is MBSR?
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is for individuals experiencing stress resulting from chronic physical and psychological conditions.

This 8-week psycho-educational group program helps develop capacity for greater calm and teaches practical skills to manage stress. The majority of MBSR program participants report lasting decreases in psychological and physical symptoms exacerbated by chronic stress.

Research has demonstrated improved behavioural outcomes including better sleep, lower blood pressure, and fewer worries.

Participants Will Learn
How to develop a different relationship to stress resulting from chronic physical and psychological conditions.

Who Should Attend
Individuals suffering from chronic stress, illness and pain, who wish to increase their overall health and wellbeing. See guidelines on whether MBSR or MBCT is right for you.

A commitment to attendance and home practice activities is required. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the day-long silent retreat. If you are not able to attend the scheduled Session 4, or if you would have to miss more than two sessions in total, we recommend that you register for an MBSR program starting on a different date. And please note that, in order to receive an insurance receipt, you must attend a minimum of six sessions.
