Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (online)

This is the gold-standard of mindfulness training. Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn 45 years ago at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, this program is the foundation for all mindfulness-based programs and scientific research on mindfulness. LVHN Center for Mindfulness has offered this program for 20 years. The program takes place over eight weeks in 2 ½ hour classes and includes a half-day retreat. Participants are given support to develop their own daily mindfulness practice. Time is allocated to explore and communicate the benefits of mindfulness. A detailed manual is provided that includes background information, enrichment exercises, and resources for continued practice.
