Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Distance Learning

Can’t come to a class every week? Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction comes to you!

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. It is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up, being fully alive, and being present for the richness of each moment of our lives. Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress. Offered at Duke since 1998, our program challenges participants to practice present-moment awareness, deep relaxation, and gentle movement.
