Mindfulness-based stress reduction

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week evidence-based program that offers secular, intensive mindfulness training. It is designed to help participants develop their own mindfulness practice and learn new ways of handling difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. It was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in 1979 and it is now taught all over the world. It is particularly helpful for people suffering from stress, anxiety, depression and pain.

The 8-week Drama to Calmer-Mindfulness MBSR course is a highly participatory, supportive, and structured course and offers:

  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices

  • Gentle stretching and mindful movement

  • Group dialogue and mindful communication and discussion

  • Exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life

  • A workbook with daily assignments and home practice materials

  • A set of Guided Meditations will be made available to the participants for home practice.
