Participants in the MBSR Program learn several practices, such as mindfulness meditation and mindful movement, that help them improve their mental, physical, and emotional health. Students develop the ability to more accurately observe their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and respond more wisely to the stressors in their lives. This educational program, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph. D., at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979, is being taught all over the world because it is supported by 40+ years of published scientific research validating the positive outcomes it brings about. Studies show that the MBSR program can lead to a wide range of benefits including:

  • Increased focus and reduced distraction
  • Increased mental clarity and improved memory
  • Increased relaxation, energy, joy, contentment and enthusiasm for life
  • Improved sense of well-being
