Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (8 weeks) 


taught by Richard Berger, MD

Course Description: 

Mindful-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program originally designed over thirty years ago by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. The course has a basis in eastern psychology and is very applicable to modern secular life. Mindfulness is the practice of sustained focus, self-regulation, self-exploration, and self-liberation with an accepting, open and kind attitude. Common outcomes include:

Calmness and expanded awareness

Increased brain growth and function in areas of emotional control and executive function

Decreased stress

Improved self-image, emotional regulation, and concentration

Less anxiety
