Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction-MBSR-is an intensive 8-week, 9-session training in mindfulness. Groups meet weekly for 2.5 hours and for an all-day session between weeks six and seven. Guided instruction in various mindfulness practices is provided, including sitting and walking meditation, the body scan, gentle yoga, and other guided meditations. These practices are enhanced through inquiry exercises, group dialogue, daily home assignments, guided audio files, and practice materials. MBSR was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. Since that time hundreds of studies have been done proving the benefits to overall health and well-being of participants in MBSR courses.
