I have opened registration for fall’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses Thursday evening starting October 3rd as well as Saturday afternoon MBSR Programs. The Saturday, 2pm training starting October 5th, is an excellent choice for Portland area commuters with good traffic and Max nearby. And it is just after the Saturday Market; nice food, market goods, city fountain! Just a few yards from my classroom’s front door. Also, my classroom is an easy 2-block walk from both downtown Hillsboro Max stations. There are a number of excellent restaurants, shops, and parks downtown near my classrooms. Here are more general details about MBSR.
A rich background of scientific research and books has made MBSR one of the most effective and respected methods of helping people though the most stressful challenges of life: heart disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, asthma, multiple sclerosis, sleep problems and much more. Read a summary of my MBSR program’s clinical results. You may want to read the review paper about my MBSR program and mindfulness in the Journal of Participatory Medicine coauthored by my colleagues, 15 local referring physicians, therapists, teachers and MBSR participants: Mindfulness in Participatory Medicine Context & Relevance.
