If you are unsure whether you would like to register for the class, and would like to attend the orientation as a guest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that classes do tend to fill and develop a waitlist, so if you plan on waiting until after the orientation to decide whether you want to register or not, it is possible that you will need to join a later cohort.
The Orientation session consists of meeting the instructor and other participants, an introduction to what participation in the class entails, a talk about the impact of stress and mindfulness on health, the history of MBSR, and research on the MBSR model, and instruction in and practice of introductory mindfulness techniques.
The 8-week MBSR program is comprised of the Orientation and a 30-minute private interview with the instructor before the first class, eight weekly sessions, and one daylong retreat on a Saturday or Sunday.
