Take better care of yourself with the mindfulness practice based on the research-supported work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Discover why this secular, scientific, evidence-based practice has become so widely accepted and how it can positively affect the quality of your everyday life. Experience how mindfulness aids stress reduction and pain management and learn how mindfulness can help you better contend with difficulty, improve communication with others and increase your overall sense of well-being. Participate in mindfulness meditation practices, gentle stretching with mindful movement, and inquiry exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life. The course includes access to guided meditations and an all-day retreat near the end of the course.
