Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

 

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a highly researched and popular programme that cultivates mindfulness in everyday life, improving health and easing stress. This programme is based upon the work of Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, our own work and other leading authorities in the world of neurobiology and meditation.


During this 8 week course we will explore and encourage you to make mindfulness practice part of your lifestyle. Backed by sound scientific research presented in an easy to understand format, not only will you enjoy meditation, you will come to understand why meditation is just as important to our health and well-being as exercise and diet.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The MBSR course follows a structured 8 week programme with group sizes varying between 8 and 14 participants. Single weekly sessions are generally 2 to 2.5 hours long, there is an optional one day mindfulness retreat towards the end of the course.


Each session, backed by a scientific overview, covers particular exercises and topics that are examined within the context of mindfulness. These include different forms of mindfulness meditation practice, mindful awareness during everyday activities and mindfulness during stressful situations and social interaction:

Once per term, we also offer an exclusive 5-day residential course and retreat in the North York Moors, called the MBSR Intensive programme.  This programme covers the same content as the traditional 8 week MBSR course, offering you a unique opportunity to learn mindfulness meditation in just one week.

Towards the end of your course you will be invited to join us for a day of peace and meditation. This is a unique opportunity to prioritise your wellbeing by taking a day out to relax, refresh and rejuvanate.
