Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workshop at Lexington Healing Arts begins October 2, 2011
The MBSR program combines the art and science of meditation to transform the way you relate to stress. This 8 session intensive program was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The workshop begins Oct. 2.
MBRS is highly regarded for making mindfulness meditation accessible for people from all walks of life. Scientific studies have shown this program to decrease psychological and physical pain and discomfort and improve the overall quality of life for participants. The Center for Mindfulness (University of Massachusetts Medical School) reports, “Our work over the past twenty-eight years has shown consistent, reliable, and reproducible demonstrations of major and clinically relevant reductions in medical and psychological symptoms across a wide range of medical diagnoses, including many different chronic pain conditions [Kabat-Zinn, 1982; Kabat-Zinn, Lipworth and Burney, 1985; Kabat-Zinn et al, 1986], other medical diagnoses [Kabat-Zinn and Chapman-Waldrop, 1988]; and in medical patients with a secondary diagnosis of anxiety and/or panic [Kabat-Zinn et al, 1992; Miller et al, 1995], over the eight weeks of the MBSR intervention, and maintenance of these changes in some cases for up to four years of follow-up.”
Sessions will be from 3:00-5:00 PM, except November 6th will be A Day of Mindfulness from 10:00 AM-4:00 PM. Registration, including all materials, is $285. The classes will be taught by Anita Courtney and Toni Reiss; both have completed the MBSR Professional Training at the Duke Center for Integrative Medicine. They have many years experience teaching and practicing yoga and meditation. “When mindfulness becomes a way of life, the impact of stress on the individual is diminished. Patterns of tension and turmoil are replaced with self assurance and ease,” says instructor Toni Reiss.
