8-Week MBSR (register until Dec 7) 18–109–14
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.
