Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

January 10, 2017|7:00pm

Co-sponsored with the Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine

It has been known for centuries in the meditative traditions, and now widely accepted in western culture, that the sustained practice of mindfulness meditation can have profoundly healing and transformative effects on one’s life. This 8-week class is modeled on the program taught at the U MASS Stress Reduction Clinic and will focus on mindfulness meditation to help you gain a new understanding of how stress affects your life, and how life can be lived more fully. Included in the class fee is the text Full Catastrophe Living, by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Instructor: Mark Abramson, DDS, the founder and facilitator of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs at Stanford. He has practiced dentistry in the Bay Area for more than thirty years, specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and temporomandibular disorders.

NOTE: Retreat on Saturday, February 18th from 9a-5p in the Alway Building, Room M112.
