a chapter of Mindfulness Ontario
MBSR is an approach to self-care that helps deal with stress, pain and illness. The MBSR course teaches people to focus awareness on body sensations, thoughts, and emotions in a non-judgmental way.
This course is modeled on the program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Kabat-Zinn’s program is evidence-based and applied all over the world.
The course consists of eight weekly classes and one day-long class. It is designed to introduce mindfulness practice as a way of reducing stress and developing greater balance, control and participation in one’s life.
