Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is an 8-week psycho-educational group intervention. The central focus of the program is intensive training in mindfulness meditation and the integration of these skills into everyday life. We specifically focus on investigating the stress reactivity cycle and changing our relationship to stressors in our lives. Using Mindfulness, our actions and decisions have the potential to become conscious, more informed, deliberate, and less automatic or reactive.
