MBSR Programme

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week programme designed for individuals with chronic illness and stress-related problems. It also benefits those who simply want to live more mindfully.

The Cape Town MBSR programme is modelled on the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, the oldest and largest hospital-based stress reduction clinic in the United States.

The MBSR programme offers an intensive training in formal and informal mindfulness-based techniques that are used to cope more effectively with stress, illness and pain. Participants learn to access their internal resources for balance and healing by utilizing self-regulation as a complement to standard medical and psychological treatment.

 
We live in stressful, turbulent times. The pace of life is accelerating exponentially; uncertainty, endless change, and countless demands are the norm. These everyday challenges can and often do adversely affect our health and well-being. In the face of this it is critically important to realize we have the strength, stability and resilience within us for effectively meeting these challenges. Mindfulness is a way for you to access these inner resources
