Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Modified: November 10, 2017

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program designed to guide participants into cultivating a practice of mindfulness through techniques of body awareness, sitting and walking meditation, and mindful movement.  Mindfulness is the experience of developing particular awareness to the present moment without judgement.  MBSR fosters comprehensive personal wellness including an increase in emotional resilience and management of stress, anxiety, and pain.  Pioneered by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, MBSR is considered the gold standard in teaching mindfulness in secular group settings and is routinely shared in schools, hospitals, and businesses as a practical way to seek a contemplative path.
