Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (In-Person)

Date/Time 02/28/2024
4:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Location Duke Integrative Medicine


Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) uses 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.
