Transform your relationship with stress. Live more fully.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) can transform your life. It decreases stress levels, improves physiological and emotional health, and enhances your ability to thrive in all aspects of life.
MBSR gives you an enhanced perspective on your stressors and teaches you to see and react to them differently. It can decrease emotional reactivity and increase awareness and insight, which helps you cope more effectively with life’s challenges, big or small, whether they’re related to health, relationships, or your professional life.
Originally developed to augment medical and psychological treatments, MBSR has been used successfully across a wide array of conditions, including pain management. Physiologically, MBSR reduces cortisol levels, which improves cognition, memory, and immune system and heart health resulting in a healthier, more resilient, productive, and peaceful you.
The best news? Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is teachable.

How it works
MBSR trains a capacity of your brain that otherwise receives little or no training, strengthening neural connections and pathways in the central executive network. The MBSR curriculum was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center more than 30 years ago. Research shows that eight weeks of MBSR training can rewire your neural networks, which invites greater control over brain regions connected to conditional response, emotional reactivity, and fear.
