Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction WorkShop
Description: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an experiential program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn that uses mindfulness as its foundation. Through cultivating non-judgmental awareness of our moment-to-moment experience, MBSR offers a user-friendly, integrated approach to working with our daily physical, emotional and psychological stress, as well as offering powerful coping tools for cultivating inner peace and wellness. Many participants also find that their MBSR experience provides a solid foundation for deep emotional healing and personal, relational and spiritual growth. This program is designed for both men and women to acquire skills that lead to living a fulfilling, authentic life.
Recent MBSR reviews:
"this is the most direct path to inner peace i've experienced. mbsr was the answer to my wish for peace in the chaos. i had a series of traumatic events that left me feeling vulnerable and in a state of almost constant anxiety about what other great tragedy awaited me. there was little anyone could say or do to help me feel any peace about life. i had almost resigned to believing i'd had too much exposure to pain and that i would just have to learn to live with the anxiety.
MBSR changed everything. From the first reading to well beyond the class, there are so many amazing ways to connect with peace in the present moment. and even though i was only searching for a way to peace (a tiny little goal), i found new levels of awareness through exercises like mindful eating and mindful walking. I even used mindfulness in experiencing my migraines which subsequently disappeared. I'm a recent transplant to tampa and have to say i'm amazed and grateful that such a great program exists in this city. beth provides a comfortable and supportive atmosphere to learn about mindfulness and work through the struggles that come up in the process (and they always do). i can't say enough about how wonderful the experience was. i've been recommending it to everyone i love. it really is the best gift you can give yourself."

"What a joy it was having the opportunity to be in the MBSR class for women! You were adept at facilitating the group and when I found myself judging what someone was saying, I looked at you and you were opening. Thank you for allowing all of us the space to just "be" in the moment with our fellow sisters.
Look forward to another workshop!!" M.B.
