MBSR is highly respected within the medical community. Offered as a complement to traditional medical and psychological treatments, not as a replacement, it is proven to be effective in helping to treat:
  • stress (work, family or personal)

  • anxiety

  • sleep disorders

  • chronic illness and pain

  • depression

  • grief

  • eating disorders

  • panic attacks

  • and other conditions of life

In this intensive training, you will learn to access and cultivate your natural capacity to actively engage in caring for yourself and find greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.
MBSR develops over a period of 8 weeks. Participants meet weekly for a 2 hours and a half session, experiencing mindfulness through practice, reflective exercises and sharing. In-between sessions, participants are invited to engage each day for at least 40 minutes in guided practices and reflective exercises. This daily engagement is essential part of the programme and is a powerful routine to discover and integrate the practice in our daily lives, not just in the classroom. Between week 6 and 7, a full-day of intensive practice is planned, in the form of a retreat.
During all the programme mindfulness is explored and cultivated through different practices, all accessible and non-religious in nature (body scan, sitting meditation, walking meditation, gentle movements based on yoga, etc.). Practices are adapted to anyone, and appropriate instructions are given to take care and integrate all types of physical limitations and conditions.
