Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an effective program of the University of Massachusetts Medical School for reducing physical and psychological suffering. The key to mindfulness is a non-judgmental awareness that enables us to respond with greater clarity, stability and understanding to life’s stressors, rather than reacting in unhealthy ways.The program consists of eight weekly 2 1/2 hour classes, and a one-day silent retreat (on a weekend) between sessions six and seven. Participants who complete this course can enhance their ability to relax, reduce anxiety and anger, live in the moment, cope with chronic pain, focus and concentrate, find balance, clarity and stability.
