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 engagement 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.
This class is an intensive training in the contemplative practice of mindfulness meditation. The class builds on a direct experiential practice of meditation through weekly class attendance and 45 minutes daily of home practice.
Participants will need to provide the text Full Catastrophe Living, by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Online retreat scheduled for Saturday, July 31, from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. Sessions for this class will be recorded and made available to participants.
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.
