What is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)?
Mindfulness-based approaches are intended to teach people practical skills that can help with physical and psychological health problems and ongoing life challenges. MBSR Programme is an integration of ancient Buddhist practices and philosophy of mindfulness, with current psychological understanding and knowledge, they are taught in an entirely secular way, and have no religious context at all.
Mindfulness-based approaches are intended to help in pragmatic, practical ways, the approaches facilitate us in realising and accessing our existing inner understanding. Mindfulness is taught through meditation skills which include bringing attention to the breath and the body during stillness and movement.

Eight weekly Sessions of two and a half hours
