Mindfulness is a way of paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, with kindness towards our experience. The MBSR course was developed by Jon Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in order to help patients with chronic pain and illness cope with stress and related symptoms. The course curriculum includes several forms of mindfulness and meditation practices, emphasizing ways of integrating mindfulness into daily life in order to reduce stress and increase overall well-being. MBSR has been shown to improve anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, pain, physiological and cognitive manifestations of stress, and more. You do not need to have any experience with meditation or mindfulness to participate in MBSR. It is appropriate for all levels of experience.
