Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based program shown to significantly reduce symptoms of stress and stress-related disorders, as well as contribute to an overall sense of well-being. This 8-week intensive mindfulness training will include guided meditation practices in a group setting, techniques to apply mindfulness in daily life, gentle yoga, group discussion and home practice with guided audio. Please note, this course is not a training course to teach mindfulness. It is an experiential course to promote stress reduction and well-being.
The course is presented by Neda Gould, Ph.D., director of the Mindfulness Program at Johns Hopkins. The Silent Retreat takes place on Monday, March 4 from 12pm to 6pm and available to attendees of the course.
