If you would like to learn how to live with greater ease, resilience and balance this course is for you!

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week programme in mindfulness meditation and practice which draws on aspects of cognitive science and stress physiology.  The primary aim of this evidence-based programme is to reduce stress and increase wellbeing through mindfulness-based training.

The MBSR programme includes:

  • 8 x 2.5 hour weekly classes
  • Day of mindfulness practice between weeks 6 and 7
  • Course workbook and MP3 audio recordings to support ‘home practice’
  • Pre-course orientation call with instructor to:
    • Give you an understanding of what is involved and what to expect
    • Ensure that this is the right time for you to engage in MBSR
    • Answer any questions you may have


Extensive research spanning over 30 years suggests that participation in an MBSR programme can positively and often profoundly affect our ability to reduce stress, increase resilience and live more fully.  Benefits of MBSR have been shown to include:

  • Reduced levels of stress and anxiety
  • Enhanced ability to relax and experience calm
  • Increased emotional resilience and wellbeing
  • Reduced experience of physical pain
  • Improved immune system functionality
  • Increased sense of purpose and meaning

 Spaces are limited to a maximum of 8 participants
(Early booking is advised)


NB:  MBSR is designed to achieve concrete and long lasting results.   This requires a certain level of commitment which includes 45-60 minutes of daily home practice on non-class days for the duration of the course.  It may not be easy to adjust your routine to allow yourself this time at first but you will find that the benefits are well worth the effort 🙂
