MBSR offers the possibility of connecting with the space of health and well-being within you regardless of your life situation.
We often find ourselves at a tipping point in our lives due to the multifaceted challenges of living in our fast-paced world. It could be around a time of crisis in your life—physiological, psychological or emotional, or that feeling of being overwhelmed, frantic and just wanting balance. Perhaps you’ve lost your connection to your own inner resources to health and well-being or to your own practice and want to reconnect.
The MBSR Workshop offers a safe, nurturing environment in which to reconnect with life in a new way which enhances/improves the quality of your life and relationships. The course is challenging and life-affirming. Through a series of 8 weekly sessions, participants learn and integrate mind-body techniques, designed to uncover and strengthen resources that are already within.
Mindfulness Everyday offers MBSR workshops in Toronto and the Southern Ontario region. For workshop schedules, please see the Schedule Page.
What are the benefits of MBSR?
Mindfulness is the practice of present moment, non-judgmental awareness of one's life experience. Through the use of mind/body techniques, one begins to relate to the stress and anxiety in life differently in ways that allow for more creative solutions and possibilities. It can help you:
- Enhance physical, emotional, mental, social health and well-being
- Increase ability to flow with the ups and downs of everyday life
- Deepen understanding and compassion for oneself and others
The course consists of eight weekly sessions and one all day retreat session on a weekend.
This practical course includes:
- Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
- Gentle stretching and mindful yoga
- Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life
- Daily home practice assignments
- Practice CDs and a home practice workbook
- The textbook: Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Course fees include materials – the text, audio CDs, workbook, and HST.
In the spirit of generosity, some spaces may be available to those who genuinely are unable to afford the full cost of the workshop. Alternative payment options may be considered.
Facilitated by experienced instructors, the course is conducted in a safe and supportive learning environment.
