Founded over forty years ago by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction offers a systematic learning experience that accesses deep, innate resources for healing, growing, and potentially transforming one’s way of being in relationship with the joys and challenges of life. MBSR has been widely studied and is one of the most evidence-based mindfulness programs. Since its inception, many mindfulness-based and mindfulness-informed programs have been established in order to skillfully meet the specific needs and conditions of different populations.
- Offers similar experiential conditions of meditation and investigation that led to the vision and founding of MBSR;
- Provides support to cultivate awareness of and intimacy with the workings of the mind and body which can lead to greater freedom from stress, anxiety, pain, or illness.
