About The Event

Dear potential participant, 

I don't need to tell you that life can be overwhelming. We all have different situations and circumstances in our lives that cause stress, but the effects on the body and the brain are the same. How do you handle your stress, and might it be worth exploring another approach? 

Jon Kabat-Zinn created the "Stress Reduction Clinic" (now called MBSR) 40 years ago for the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, and it's helped thousands of people worldwide incorporate mindfulness and meditation into their lives, including myself. 

Meditation and mindfulness have been proven to reduce the stress responses we are all vulnerable to, help to make us aware of habitual and unhealthy behavioral patterns, and get us in touch with our inner wisdom. This is a secular (non-religious) course. 

Join me, Kim Douglass, a certified MBSR instructor, as I guide you through the first four weeks of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program. The program includes 10 hours of class time, an 80 page workbook and a USB stick with pre-loaded guided meditations for your home practice*.  The price for this course is only for part one (4 weeks). 

Dates, times and topics are as follows:

Wednesday, January  8, 2020: What is Mindfulness? / 6:30-9:00 pm

Wednesday, January 15, 2020: Coming to Our Senses / 6:30-9:00 pm

Wednesday, January 22, 2020: What is Stress? / 6:30-9:00 pm

Wednesday, January 29, 2020: Coping With Stress / 6:30-9:00 pm

This is part 1 of a two-part course. If you find the first four weeks helpful, you are welcome to continue your MBSR journey in the second part of the course offered in part 2, scheduled for March 2020.


*Participants MUST be able to set aside a MINIMUM of 30 minutes per day 6 days a week while taking the course for meditation practice. This is on an honor system, of course, but this will only strengthen your understanding of the material. This course is experiential (meaning you must experience meditation in order for it to have any effect). 

I also need to have a short conversation either in person on via Skype or Zoom in order to determine if this is the best time for you to be taking this course. 

I hope I can be a part of your mindful journey. 

Warm regards,
