Room: Grant Park

MBSR is for people who will commit to mindfulness practice six days a week for eight weeks PLUS one full day. A variety of practices will be taught including meditation, body scanning, yoga, mindful eating, and more. The relationship between mindfulness and stress and mindfulness and health, including positive changes in brain function, will be described in an understandable fashion. Talking and listening exercises, as well as group discussions are included in this course. The full day of practice is an important part of the program.

The benefits of this course are that it provides the participant with instruction, information, structure, and support for developing and maintaining mindfulness practices. The resulting skill of mindfulness of our bodies, thinking, and emotions brings insight into how we relate to stress and to life. We see choices that never occurred to us before. Rather than living with constant fear of not getting what we want, we begin to remember what it is like to feel good about being alive.
