Note:  Sessions are conducted live online via Zoom.
CEUs available: NBHWC

January 2022 | Starts week of January 24, 2022 |  Register now through January 21, 2022

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.

In the MBSR Distance Learning course participants “meet” with their instructor and classmates once a week via web conference, from wherever they may be.  This program is designed to deliver the same teachings and opportunity for group learning as our on-site MBSR program to those who are unable to visit our facility on a weekly basis, for reasons of scheduling difficulties, distance, or physical limitations.
