Event description

Description

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program, developed by Dr Jon Kabat Zinn at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Medical School in 1979, consists of eight classes and one all-day class. There are 31 hours of learning and practice hours.


MBSR is a well-defined and systematic patient-centered educational approach which uses relatively intensive training in mindfulness meditation as the core of a program to teach people how to take better care of themselves and live healthier and more adaptive lives. The outcomes are:


  • Approach your life with more composure, energy, understanding and enthusiasm
  • Develop the ability to cope more effectively with both short-term and long-term stressful situations
  • Enhance your ability to manage and reduce pain levels in many instances
  • Improve your focus, resilience and capacity to recover more quickly from challenging events
At Brahm Centre, MBSR is taught by Angie Chew, a qualified and highly acclaimed mindfulness trainer. She has conducted mindfulness courses and workshops for more than 30 organisations including Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Institute of Mental Health, Agency For Integrated Care, Sengkang Health, National Council for Social Service and Goldman Sachs.
