MBSR Course Information

A Mid-Winter 8 Week Program at the Yoga Connection

with Jill Dunkley

I took the MBSR program because I felt my life was out of control and I needed help in learning how to cope. The program, with Jill’s compassionate teaching, did successfully show me how to deal with the stressors in my life, but unexpectedly moved me to want to continue fostering a deeper understanding of myself and my life through mindfulness and meditation.

Life can be stressful-especially in the doldrums of mid-winter.  What if we could, instead, just stop in the middle of the weather of our lives, step outside of it and see our lives more calmly and clearly?  This 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is based on such a liberating view.  Mindfulness is a simple, yet profound way of relating directly to whatever is happening in our lives, including the challenges of stress, pain, illness and everyday demands.  This course is modeled on the program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.  Kabat-Zinn's program is evidence-based and is the "gold standard" in such mindfulness training.

This 8 week MBSR course will be offered at the Yoga Connection.  Anyone is welcome to apply and no yoga experience necessary.
