Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
at Maine's Mid Coast Hospital

 
  Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
   

It is normal to experience stress in your daily life. How you choose to respond to that stress determines its impact on your overall health and wellbeing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an educational program designed to help people better cope with stress and life’s challenges. Mindfulness is an awareness that arises by intentionally paying attention to the present moment.

Through direct practice in mindful meditation, mindful movement, instruction, and conversation, MBSR participants learn to cultivate mindfulness, which may help them:

  • Identify healthy ways of coping with stress
  • Regulate their emotions
  • Improve psychological flexibility
  • Enhance interpersonal relationships
  • Reduce stress related to chronic illness, physical and/or emotional suffering

MBSR is an 8-week course taught in 2.5 hour weekly group classes and one 6-hour weekend retreat. Participants should also plan for an additional 45 minutes of home practice per day. The course encourages learning and exploration that can be both challenging and life-affirming.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Booster Series

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Booster Series is designed to support your ongoing practice of mindfulness after completion of the 8-week MBSR program. Similar in format to the 8-week program, this four week series gives you the opportunity to continue your practice in a group setting, while exploring new and previously learned exercises.
