Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
This class is co-sponsored with the Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine.
It has been known for centuries in the meditative traditions, and now widely accepted in Western culture, that the sustained practice of mindfulness meditation can have profoundly healing and transformative effects on one’s life. This 8-week online class is modeled on the program taught at the UMass Stress Reduction Clinic and will focus on mindfulness meditation to help you gain a new understanding of how stress affects your life and how life can be lived more fully.
NOTE: Participants will need to provide the text Full Catastrophe Living, by Jon Kabat-Zinn. A Virtual Retreat is scheduled for Saturday, August 22, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Please use the Zoom link above to join the Retreat.
Instructor: Mark Abramson, DDS, is the founder and facilitator of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs at Stanford. He has practiced dentistry in the Bay Area for more than 30 years, specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and temporomandibular disorders.
