Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

MBSR originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 is a highly structured, comprehensive and highly engaging program that takes the form of eight weekly two and one half hour classes, and one all day retreat. 

The programs' primary focus is the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness involves cultivating the art of paying attention in a particular way to one's experience from moment to moment with both curiosity and wonder, and in the process, letting go of attachment to unhealthy min, body, and emotional states. This learning lends one to deep self understanding, and the learning of powerful methods for actively participating in one's personal well being and healing on many levels. 

Emerging studies validate that MBSR participants may experience:

Enhanced immune function: Increased perception of time: Decreased stress related symptoms: Increased ability to relax: Enhanced management of chronic illness: Balance in mind body states: Enhanced self awareness and self management skills: Greater ability to respond to both long and short term stressors, and more!

We welcome anyone who wants to experience first hand the health and consciousness benefits of mindfulness. 


Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm in Hanchett Auditorium at Lowell General Hospital's Main Campus
