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.

“Gullu Singh was an excellent teacher. He was calm but also upbeat. I enjoyed the visuals he brought to class. HIs energy was very kind, patient and understanding. Even though I was late to sessions because of family responsibilities, I never felt judged– only welcomed– by Gullu. He answered all of our questions with a spirit of wanting to provide insight, but also not telling
us what to do or think. I would definitely take another class with Gullu, and recommend his class to others.”“My teacher Gullu was excellent. I felt his good intentions and even love for this practice and this work. And I felt he was doing his best to share to that with all of us even through this digital medium.”
“Gullu is kind, compassionate and articulate. He is an excellent MBSR. Could not imagine the course being taught any better.”“Gullu was a great teacher and made the class interactive and interesting despite having to be done remotely. I would recommend this to those who want to find healing and a healthier, practical way to deal with stress and troubles of life they should take it.”
