The MBSR Intensive Course
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was developed at the UMass Medical School. It has been researched at medical institutions since 1979. Mindful Boston’s MBSR course is led by Gena Bean and Marjatta Moimas.
(MBSR) is an intensive nine-Sundays program for people who are committed to overhauling their relationships to their stressors.
The course is comprised of eight weekly 2.5 hour classes plus an all-day retreat. Students will commit to participating fully in class for each week of the program, plus there is a required 30 to 60 minutes of a daily home-practice during those nine weeks. You will be given audio recordings of all of the meditations to listen to at home.
MBSR is offered once per year, in the spring. Either the Toolbox or Bypassing Burnout is a prerequisite.
