MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) stands for the intensive training of mindfulness to cope with stress.
Mindfulness means to be aware of oneself and one’s environment in the present moment without judging or evaluating it. If we are mentally in the future or in the past, we miss the only time in which we can truly experience life - the here and now.
Mindfulness is therefore not a technique, but rather a way of being and living that can be cultivated through regular training.
The 8-week MBSR course was developed in 1979 by Prof. em. Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. Since then, it has been conducted at hundreds of clinics and in numerous courses in the USA and Europe and is also increasingly being used in the professional context.
Through various mindfulness exercises and meditations as well as reflection of personal habitual patterns of behaviour, you learn to cope better with stressful situations and thus achieve greater calmness, joy of life and self-acceptance.
You should be willing to practice 45-60 minutes daily for the duration of the course. The course is limited to 16 participants.
