Do you want to cultivate more moments of peace?
Our MBSR course can teach you practical skills and techniques that can help you cultivate positvity, inner strength, and peace, which can be useful in times of difficulty, stress, illness, and pain.
Here’s How We Can Help
The UAMS MBSR Course is an intensive eight-week, nine-session training in mindfulness awareness. Classes meet weekly for about two hours and for an all-day session towards the end of the course. The all-day session allows participants to immerse themselves more deeply in the practices of mindfulness meditation and mindful movement. The MBSR course will enable participants to systematically deploy these tools as well as to mindfully explore healthier relationships with the day-to-day challenges and demands of life. We offer a peaceful, safe and supportive learning environment for all program participants.
Here’s What You Can Expect
- Guided mindfulness meditation practices
- Gentle stretching and mindful movement exercises
- Group dialogue and discussions
- Mentored instructions on MBSR meditation practices
- Printed and digital materials and resources
