"Mindfulness is awareness,
cultivated by paying attention in a sustained and particular way:
on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally."

"MBSR is a life affirming course in conscious living."  
- UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness

Mindfulness cultivates your natural capacity to find greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.

Being mindful benefits your relationship with yourself, the expectations you have for your life and your career, and how you interact with others. The awareness you create can shift your entire life experience.  

 

MBSR was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts and has been extensively studied since the late 1970s. It is a standardized protocol of mind-body therapies that involves mindfulness meditation, education, and group support. It has been used as the protocol for hundreds of research studies that prove the efficacy of mindfulness for mental and physical well-being.

​MBSR is highly respected within the medical community; used as a complement to traditional medical and psychological treatments. You’ll learn life-long tools that will help you maximize your life, even when facing stress, illness and pain. ​

 

Research shows that people who complete this course report:
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life.

  • An increased ability to relax and enjoy each moment.

  • Improved self-esteem, self-acceptance, and confidence.

  • Access to inner resources for coping with life stressors.

  • Lower pain levels and/or a better ability to cope with pain that may not go away.

  • Lasting decreases in physical and psychological symptoms.

 

"Marnee Weber's MBSR course gets to the heart of  why you are stressed out and what you can do about it. If you can change your stress response, you can change your life."

"Mindfulness is at the heart of everything I know about calming my inner turmoil and awakening joy. I am determined to teach this invaluable life practice to others. After practicing mindfulness for more than 2 decades, the 8-week course blew my mind with its accessible and inspiring methodology.
Each day as I sat on my cushion at the MBSR Teacher Training,
I knew I was exactly where I was meant to be."
 

- Marnee Weber
