As I did this spring I have opened registration for summer’s Saturday MBSR Course in addition to my regular Thursday evening MBSR Course. The Saturday, 2pm training, is an excellent choice for Portland area commuters with good traffic and Max nearby. And it is just after the Saturday Market, a few yards from the classroom’s front door; nice food, market goods, city fountain! My classrooms are an easy 2-block walk from both downtown Hillsboro Max stations. Also there are a number of excellent restaurants, shops, and parks downtown near my classrooms.
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. Also, you may be interested in my clinical research paper in the same Journal: Mindfulness, Self-Care, & Participatory Medicine: A Community’s Clinical Evidence.
