CANCELLED Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
WE PLAN TO RESCHEDULE THIS CLASS, INSTRUCTOR HAD FAMILY HEALTH ISSUES.
MBSR is a formal eight-week program meeting once a week with a daylong intensive during week six Sat. May 21 from 9-4pm. This program helps participants learn to calm the mind and body in order to enable practitioners to cope with illness, pain, and stress.
Instructor, Gabrielle Tabor, has been a teacher for 14 years and has practiced meditation since 2005. She has completed MBSR Teacher Training through the UCSD Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute and is grateful to be able to bring this practice to others.
MBSR teaches mindfulness, the practice of attending to the present moment, purposefully paying attention to and cultivating that awareness of one’s surroundings, emotions, thoughts, and how the body feels without judgement.
By training the mind to focus only on the present, practitioners learn not to get lost in rumination about the past or worries about the future. Learning to let go of these mental narratives may help practitioners to worry less and accept things as they are.
Highly respected within the medical community, MBSR is offered as a complement to traditional medical and psychological treatments and has been proven to be effective in helping to treat a variety of conditions.
