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 is an awareness that arises by intentionally paying attention to the present moment.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an educational program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Its eight-week curriculum is designed to help participants cultivate mindfulness through direct practice in meditation, mindful movement, instruction, and conversation.

Since its initial development, MBSR has been studied for a range of medical and psychological conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, diabetes, depression, cancer, heart disease, and stress. It is now offered in medical, occupational, and educational settings around the world.

MBSR is an eight-week course taught in 2.5-hour, weekly group classes and one six-hour weekend retreat. Participants are also encouraged to complete approximately 45 minutes of home practice per day.

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 eight-week MBSR program. Similar in format to the eight-week program, this four-week series of 1.5-hour classes provides the opportunity to continue your practice in a group setting, while exploring new and previously learned exercises.
