The intention of this class is that through practicing short guided meditations, self reflection, and inquiry you can learn to use your attention as a vehicle to self-regulate the nervous system during times of stress and uncertainty. This exploration of the themes of MBSR help create a healthier relationship with your thoughts and emotions while developing more resilience, acceptance, and compassion towards yourself and others.
This class is appropriate for anyone that would like to apply mindfulness for stress reduction and well-being and for MBSR graduates who would like to refresh their practice.
Join us every second Tuesday from 12-12:45pm.
