Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)​ students come from all walks of life, but they share one thing in common: the desire to find more balance, peace and happiness in their lives.  If you share these aspirations, MBSR can be a valuable resource for you.

Two decades of published research indicate that the majority of people who complete the eight-week program report greater ability to cope more effectively with both short- and long-term stressful situations.

By learning to actively participate in the management of health and well being, many participants report they are better able to manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety and depression both at home and in the workplace.

Participants have stated that they feel less judgmental and critical of themselves, and subsequently of others. Many also report a decrease of the frequency and length of medical visits to hospitals and other professional health-care providers. There has also been a noticeable decrease in the use of prescription and non-prescription medications among students of MBSR.
