Reduce Stress with the MBSR 8-Week Online Program
Invest in the most respected, well-established and evidence-based mindfulness meditation program, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8-week series. Connect in real time with others around the globe seeking greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.
The MBSR secular, trauma-sensitive program was created by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD at the UMass Medical Center in 1979 to optimize one's ability to face stress, pain and illness and make sustainable change across one's lifespan.
A July 2016 study published by Society of Occupational Medicine indicated mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) participants reported improved cognitive (self-esteem) and emotional well-being and reported significantly fewer workdays off due to sickness compared to the control group. Advocating for and supporting this form of cost-effective workplace stress management for employees is beneficial.

Live fully with more composure, understanding, enthusiasm, ease and joy.

I am astonished at how life changing this course was. I learned and grew in unexpected and refreshing new ways. The most difficult aspect was that it ended. I'd recommend MBSR to anyone and cannot wait to continue this important work. I am grateful to the participants in my group and for my instructor. Brenda is professional, intelligent, kind and trustworthy. The class and Brenda's guidance was absolutely transformative. Olivia Dodson
"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We feel more alive. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation and healing.”~Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn
