What changes do you want to make in your life? Maybe it is to reduce stress and increase resilience or possibly change habitual reactivity patterns that damage your relationships or maybe it is to reduce anxiety or depression? Connect in real-time with others around the globe seeking greater balance, ease, and peace of mind. The MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) secular, trauma-sensitive, 8-Week program was created by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD in 1979 at the UMass Medical Center to optimize one's ability to face stress, pain and illness and make sustainable change across one's lifespan.

Explore how MBSR may support you to:

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

  • Cultivate self-awareness and increase self-confidence.

  • Meet challenges with greater attention and clarity.

  • Improve focus, cognitive ability, and increase resilience.

  • Respond rather than react to stress, change habitual reactivity patterns including self-sabotage.

  • Reduce stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain.

  • Improve health and feelings of well-being.

  • Improve relationships, access your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself and others around you.
