MBSR- Mindfulness based stress reduction

Mindfulness-based stress reduction is an eight-week evidence-based program offering secular, intensive mindfulness training to assist people with stress, anxiety, depression and pain. 

The program offers a practical approach which trains attention, allowing us to cultivate awareness and to have more choices. MBSR uses a combination of mindfulness meditation, body awareness and exploration of patterns of behavior, thinking, feeling and action. 

The MBSR course offers a structured learning process, a kind of protocol, for practicing mindfulness and integrating the practice into our daily lives. The course is based on the practice of meditation, tools from cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
