The MBSR curriculum was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center over 30 years ago, and Harvard research shows that eight weeks of MBSR training rewires your neural networks, reduces cortisol levels, improves cognition, memory & executive function, and results in extensive physiological benefits, creating a healthier, more resilient, productive and peaceful you.
This course’s experiential sessions teach the principles of MBSR through mixed modalities, including several types of mindfulness meditation, awareness-building activities, group inquiry and discussion, readings, and mindful movement.
Over the course of our virtual MBSR program, you will acquire a toolkit for integrating mindfulness into your daily life through both formal and informal practices. Learn about the neuroscience and scientific evidence behind mindfulness, stress reactivity and stress response cycles. The evidence-based benefits include:
- Reduced stress
- Improved ability to manage life stressors

An intensive, experiential exploration of mindfulness, this MBSR course is especially recommended for those in high-pressure careers, anyone facing a significant life-changing event, care-takers or those struggling with chronic illness, or anyone seeking a more purpose-driven life.
