Mindfulness is a powerful way of promoting health,
reducing stress and living more fully in the present
moment.

The practice of mindfulness brings awareness of our
relationship to stress. By understanding our conditioned
patterns of reactivity, we can choose to develop
alternative ways of being with our difficulties and
anxieties.

The MBSR Course improves concentration and
attention, aids in relaxation, strengthens emotional
resilience and a sense of well-being.

Each session will build upon and strengthen tools from
the prior. Learn to:

  • Apply mindfulness meditation tools formally and informally.
  • Increase awareness of stress reactivity and develop stress responsiveness.
  • Release habits of behavior and thoughts that create tension and unhealthy living.
  • Cultivate mindful tools for greater joy, creativity and happiness.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) - $520 ($420 for Northwell)
