Welcome to MBSR
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) infuses the energy of mindfulness into your everyday life by systematically training the mind to break free from cycles of stress, anxiety, exhaustion, and unhappiness.

MBSR is considered the gold standard of non-religious mindfulness training.
