We have been long awaiting someone to bring this program to the SW Washington area!

What can MBSR offer you:

  • Learn to better cope with stress, pain and the changes which are inevitable in life.
  • MBSR is secular and evidence-based and developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School
  • Addresses a broad range of chronic disorders, problems and health issues
  • Through understanding and investigating the triggers which cause stress, and which can diminish physical and emotional health, you will learn effective tools to deal with the challenges life brings
  • Teaches you to identify your stress triggers, understand and experience how these affect your mind and body and reduce anxiety
  • Develop mindfulness practices to bring about the change leading you to more ease and balance as you learn to manage stress and life in new ways

We are offering a free orientation to MBSR

Sunday Sept 10th 3-5pm or Sunday Sept 17th 3-5pm
