which strengthen mindfulness are associated with improved health, enhanced
quality of life, better relationships, increased productivity, and an abiding
sense of well-being. Mindfulness is present-moment,
non-judgmental awareness - a natural human skill we can strengthen through
practices such as meditation and yoga.
The signature offering at Integrative
Mindfulness is Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) - an
evidence-based educational program in which participants learn a variety of
meditation methods, gentle yoga, and the latest scientific understanding of
stress physiology. MBSR is proven effective for reducing stress and improving
health and quality of life. Designed and implemented by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at
the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979, MBSR is supported by
three decades of scientific research confirming its benefits.
Today MBSR continues to grow in popularity and
is taught in hundreds of health-care and wellness settings throughout the U.S.
and worldwide. MBSR is a complementary resource for promoting the effectiveness
of conventional medical therapies. MBSR is also beneficial for people seeking
practical tools for living with more ease and calm, for performing at their
best, and for responding wisely, rather than reacting automatically,
to life’s inevitable stress.
Integrative Mindfulness offers a variety of opportunities for
practice, healing, and life-long learning. Explore this website to
