Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

8-week online course

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program that introduces mindfulness practices in the form of sitting meditation, body awareness, and mindful movement, modeled by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD.  

This program can help if stress is having a negative impact on your life, if you are experiencing chronic physical or mental distress, or if you are simply interested in learning ways to maintain health and well-being. Over 6,000 research papers have published findings on the benefits of practicing MBSR including decreased anxiety, depression, pain, and distress, and increased attention, concentration, performance, and quality of life. Recent studies have found that an 8-week MBSR course had comparable effectiveness to a first-line medication for patients with anxiety disorders (JAMA, 2022)

Mindfulness for Healing Chronic Pain

5-week online course

The current medical and clinical research on chronic pain indicates that while biological factors like tissue damage, inflammation, and system dysfunction generate pain, there are multiple factors that influence how much and for how long we experience it. They include our emotions; our thoughts, beliefs, and expectations; our past experiences and memories; and the context (where we are, whom we are with, and what is happening in the moment). In other words, pain is a very complex and dynamic phenomenon that is both physical and emotional.

Drawing from the latest advances in neuroscience research and millennia-old mindfulness practices, this five-week course offers a step-by-step approach to healing chronic pain.
