Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction – An Overview

We all feel stressed and overwhelmed from time-to-time, and would welcome a simple way we can relieve that stress. Both my Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Group Program and my Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Individual Program are easy to learn and practice, and particularly effective for relieving stress, freeing up your energy and enhancing the joy of living.

Through this stress reduction technique you begin to recognize the underlying patterns of habit that hold you back, and this awakening can help you to live a more enjoyable, fuller life.

This technique is derived from my advance training in Mindfulness Meditation Practices, Mindfulness-Based Therapy/Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques. My training includes studies with Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, and associates at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction retreats as well as with Herbert Benson, MD, at the Harvard Medical School Mind Body Institute.

In addition, I have been an active practitioner of Vipassana/Insight Meditation for over 15 years. I have studied and continue to study with Jack Kornfeld, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Philip Moffit, Christopher Titmus and other teachers at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California, Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts, Vipassana Meditation Foundation in Hawaii, and other retreat centers throughout the world.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy for individuals

Besides the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Group Program and the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Individual Program, I also offer Mindfulness-Based Therapy for individuals, a specific therapeutic model that can be used to treat a variety of concerns, to those who are interested in pursuing that type of therapy. Please contact me with your questions and for an initial consultation and assessment of needs.
