Event Details

This is the world-renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction by Jon Kabat Zinn) 8-week program delivered by MBSR teachers who are fully qualified by the Centre for Mindfulness (Home of MBSR). It is a structured curriculum to introduce secular meditation practices to participants, (e.g. sitting meditation, body awareness, simple movement exercises), to enhance how we think, feel, behave and communicate. The schedule of each program spans 8 weeks with a 2 hours session once a week, and an additional full day intensive practice session. It is a highly participative course that requires commitment to regular home practice as well.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the capacity to pay attention to the present moment, intentionally and non-judgmentally. It is a simple skill that we are innately capable of and yet do not always call upon. This skill of paying attention can change the way we experience our surroundings and consequently how we react (reflexively) or respond (with choice) in our lives. Importantly, mindfulness is a skill that can be learned. Here is an excellent video featuring the Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, explaining about what Mindfulness is:



The 8-week MBSR course Developed to help patients with various illnesses through mindfulness, the original 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course was developed at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Medical School more than 30 years ago. Much of current scientific research on mindfulness (showing psychological, physiological, neurobiological and cellular effects) is based upon this original MBSR course. This MBSR course has consistently shown benefits in reducing medical and psychological symptoms in many medical conditions such as chronic pain, psoriasis, etc. A short video here introduces some past research on mindfulness:
