Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

What is Mindfulness?

Cultivate Joy

Cultivate Joy

Mindfulness refers to a natural human capacity for non-judging, present-moment centered awareness. Mindfulness arises simply by paying attention on purpose in a non-judging and accepting way to experience arising both inside and outside of one’s body.

Mindfulness is cultivated in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Retreats by practicing different meditation methods emphasizing mindfulness, for example mindfulness of breathing, of one’s body sensations, or of eating.

Everyone has the capacity for mindfulness, but there are definitely “skills” that can be practiced, through meditation, to strengthen one’s mindfulness, and to make it more available in the challenging or stressful moments of daily life. Participants will learn more about their “natural mindfulness” as well as developing their skills of steady attention and non-judging awareness throughout this training.
