Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Created by Alfie Wishart, LPC, LCDC, CRC
Begin Thursday, October 24 from 6 PM - 8:30 PM.
There will be a one day retreat between session 6 and 7.
The MBSR workshop is 8 weekly 2 1/2 hour sessions with an all-day “retreat” between weeks six and seven. Each session consists of sitting, lying down, and walking meditations, discussion of one’s experiences and home practice
The MBSR program provides us a way to calm the inner chatter, the self-reproach and the constant sense of obligation or control. MBSR is a real-world practice for us to learn how to respond to life’s demands with our whole self and in a way that we reduce our suffering and are better able to learn from life’s challenges rather than feel run over by them. How long does this take? Progress is immediate and can continue for a lifetime.
