Jan 11 – Mar 8
If you are struggling with primary infertility or pregnancy loss join Stephanie Curran, Mindfulness Instructor and Registered Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturist for this online highly interactive Zoom based program.
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an intensive 8-week, once weekly, group program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and associates at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979. It is now an internationally acclaimed program with a growing body of research supporting its psycho-physiological benefits.
The curriculum is based on an emerging field of mind-body medicine and neuropsychology. Mindfulness actually rewires the brain and strengthens the neural pathways for resilience. It helps us to be less reactive to stressors, to manage and recover more quickly from stress, and to decrease the negative impacts of chronic stress on our bodies.
Through practical training in mindfulness, cognitive behavioural and self-regulation skills, participants learn to cultivate a different relationship with stress and to develop skillful and healthy strategies in response to challenging situations.
The program consists of:
- an orientation
- eight weekly (2½ hour) classes
- a 6-hour Day of Mindfulness Retreat between weeks six and seven
For optimal benefit, this program requires participants to follow daily home practice assignments, designed to assist in the development of an effective, nourishing, and sustainable meditation practice.
Classes include presentations of information and experiential learning through:
- a variety of guided meditation practices
- mindful movement exercises (with optional modifications for safety)
- discussion of the challenges, benefits, and strategies for developing a mindfulness practice in daily life
