Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
Learn the practice of mindfulness,
Regain a feeling of control over
your health and well-being. Learn techniques that allow you to feel more in
control; a feeling of being in control has proven physical and mental health
benefits. Your ability to influence circumstances depends on how you view them.
Recognize and cultivate your own
inner resources. Each of us possesses an inner store of invaluable resources
that are available to us to help us handle difficult situations. You can
discover, develop and mobilize these resources. Facing a problem skillfully,
you can often use the pressure of the problem to move yourself through it.
Learn to trust your own
experience. Throughout your life, your experiences teach
you valuable lessons. You can begin to trust in your own experience as a teacher.
Work within your own
supportive group environment in which you are encouraged to participate at whatever level is comfortable for you.
Ultimately, you will
decide which of all the techniques are most beneficial.
