MBSR Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
MBSR students join the program seeking to feel more balance, calm and connection in their lives. If you share these aspirations then MBSR can be a valuable learning pathway for you. The decades of scientific research on MBSR show it can help you cope with stress and other difficult emotions like anxiety and depression.
When life gets stressful, it can be overwhelming and we can experience thought-based thinking patterns we can feel stuck in. MBSR students report they feel more spacious, less critical of themselves and others, happier and more engaged in their lives. The program can help you to connect more kindly & meaningfully to yourself & your relationships. The gold standard of mindfulness programs, founded by Jon Kabat Zinn PhD; MBSR can provide strong foundations for living mindfully.
MBSR will teach you skills and mindfulness practices through an experiential and systematic learning pathway that is underpinned by the eastern wisdom traditions and evidence-based science. You will participate in formal and informal mindfulness practice and be guided to begin specific daily mindfulness practice at home in-between sessions. You will be guided on a self-discovery journey within our community.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Marion is a warm, welcoming and empathetic professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her on specific areas of concern in my life. After completing the 8-week mindful based coaching I am now less stressed and feel my life is more well-rounded and balanced. I have gained valuable tools and skills to assist me in working through future challenges in all areas of my life. I found that regular sessions, working through the program and the meditation practice incorporated into the program, gave me clarity about my needs and desires, and assisted me in maintaining boundaries to stay true to my authentic self - Caitlin | University Student.
