The course will provide participants with the tools to help cultivate greater mindfulness in their day-to-day lives.

This course is open to people at any level of contemplative experience, including beginners.

Benefits of MBSR include:
Increased well-being and happiness
Less stress and anxiety
Strengthened immune system
Less emotional reactivity
Greater focus and cognitive flexibility
Greater empathy and compassion
Lasting decreases in physical and psychological symptoms
Reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with pain

The course will be held from 7 – 9:30 pm on Wednesdays from April 1 through May 20, with a full-day retreat held on Saturday, May 9 from 10 am – 5 pm. An orientation via video conference call will be held prior to the start of the course on Wednesday, March 18 at 7 pm.
