Mindfulness-Based Intervention on Stress Reduction Being Offered
“We take care of the future best by taking care of the present now.”
You are invited to participate in a program that brings self-care, awareness, and balance into your life and reduces stress associated with personal, work and life demands. Mindfulness is a practice that supports us in the ability to be aware of patterns and habits, in the present moment, on purpose, with the intention of taking better care of ourselves, of becoming “stress hardy.” This stress reduction program is based upon the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, who founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979.
The program offered here consists of a total of seven sessions:
six weekly one and a-half hour course sessions as well as
a half-day retreat between sessions five and six.
All sessions include guided meditation, gentle stretching, and discussion.
Dates: Tuesday September 30th through November 4th (6-week program)
Time: 6:30 – 8:00 pm (Tuesday evenings)

You are asked to commit to attend all seven sessions.
