Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Mindfulness based Stress Reduction, MBSR

MBSR stands for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. It's a Program that since 1979, has been given to more then 17,000 people. Mindfulness according to Jon Kabat-Zinn is ‘Awareness that arises, by paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally’. He is the creator of the MBSR training at the Center for Mindfulness at the U-Mass Medical School and introduced a form of meditation known as mindfulness.

With mindfulness, we learn to pay attention to whatever is happening in our life inwardly and outwardly. Mindfulness is a way to experientially learn to take better care of yourself by understanding the interplay of mind and body and to create a deeper sense of ease and well being. (for more info go to
