Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): An Eight Week Course for People with Cancer and their Caregivers
This 8-Week class of intensive mindfulness training is modeled after the internationally acclaimed program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn at the UMASS Medical School. Learn and practice mindfulness as a way to cope with stress effectively and access your own inner resources for a greater sense of well-being. This highly supportive and interactive class will provide you with guided instruction in mindfulness meditation, mindful yoga (gentle stretching), group discussion to increase mindfulness in daily life, ways of accessing mindfulness to cope with cancer related challenges, and daily home assignments including guided meditation recordings and a workbook. Decades of scientific research suggest that participants training in MBSR have a long lasting ability to experience a reduction in psychological distress and physical pain while learning to live life more fully.
