Curatio Mindfulness Project

Stress is a normal part of everyday life, but it can become overwhelming at times. One of the most effective ways to counter the negative effects of a stressful life is through mindfulness. The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is a unique stress-reduction  intervention developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts.The MBSR course is a clinically-proven program based on more than two decades of solid scientific research. It has been offered at major medical centers around the world and was featured in Bill Moyers’ Healing and the Mind PBS series. The eight-week MBSR program trains individuals in a class setting in the daily discipline of mindfulness and its application to everyday life. Participants learn relaxation, meditation, simple yoga techniques, and coping strategies that are easily integrated into daily life.
