8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Class (MBSR)

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program that introduces you to mindfulness practice in the form of sitting meditation, body awareness and mindful movement, modeled by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD.

In October of 2015, the British government published a promising report on mindfulness. Earlier that year, Mindful magazine published an article about this initiative, UK on the Fast Track to Becoming a Mindful Nation.

The MBSR program at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine includes a free information session and a 30-minute private interview with the instructor before the first class.
