Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an eight-week program developed by mindfulness pioneer Jon Kabat-Zinn 1979. Extensive research over the past 30 years has shown that MBSR is extremely helpful in improving quality of life. It is proven to alleviate many common mental and physical health problems:
* stress and stress-related illnesses
* depression and other mood disorders
* anxiety and panic disorders
* chronic pain
* coping with cancer
* gastrointestinal issues
* type-2 diabetes
* attention deficit disorder
* eating disorders
* heart disease
* autoimmune diseases
* and others
This course can also help you improve concentration and attention, regulate your emotions, and enhance your relationships. You will learn how to focus on the present moment and be open to things just as they are. Over eight weeks, you will develop your ability to experience greater joy, compassion, and kindness.
No previous meditation experience is required, although willingness to practice daily meditation is a key component of realizing the benefits of the course.
