105 – The Heart of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Discovering Inner Peace and Freedom
Elana Rosenbaum

No other method has had more influence on bringing self-care and awareness training into the mainstream of healthcare today than Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and now taught at more than 250 medical centers around the world, it offers simple and powerful practices such as body scan, meditation, and gentle mindful yoga to help you discover a deeper sense of wellness, balance, self-reliance, and inner freedom. No matter what the stressors in your life, you’ll leave feeling more at peace and in control. You’ll explore how to:

  • Maintain greater balance and control in dealing with everyday stress and develop skills to avoid emotional and physical depletion
  • Embrace the moment with mindfulness meditation to restore a sense of well-being no matter what challenges you face
  • Mobilize your deepest inner resources of mind, body, and spirit, and tap into your inner sources of personal renewal
  • Use specific mindfulness-based practices to bring more balance into your life
