What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the skillful practice of paying attention to the present moment with intention and without judgment. We often find ourselves caught up in either PAST thinking (which can inspire DEPRESSION) or FUTURE thinking (which can inspire ANXIETY). Rarely in our fast-paced world do we take the time to slow down and practice living more in the PRESENT moment. Mindfulness is a highly effective and potent tool towards managing one's STRESS, ANXIETY, and DEPRESSION with greater ease.
What is MBSR?
MBSR or Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction was developed at the University of Massachusettes Medical Center in the 1970s by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. MBSR and Dr. Kabat-Zinn have been featured on PBS in Bill Moyers' documentary on Healing the Mind, The Oprah Winfrey Show, NBC Dateline, and in numerous clinical research journals.
The basis of the program, which teaches skills in Mindfulness, Meditation, and gentle Yoga, is what Kabat-Zinn calls, "moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness." Students of the eight-week intensive program learn how to use their innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness. Since its inception, the program has provided consistent and reliable clinical relief for the following physiological conditions: Anxiety, Asthma, Cancer, Chronic Pain, Diabetes, Depression, Fibromyalgia, Gastrointestinal, Heart Disease, Hot Flashes, Hypertension, Mood Disorders, Sleep Disturbances, Stress Disorders, etc.
