MBSR COURSE ONLINE

8 weeks of 2 ½ hour mindfulness training sessions
Mindfulness-based stress reduction is a group program that was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1970s to treat patients struggling with life's difficulties and physical and/or mental illness (Kabat-Zinn, 2013)

Although it was initially created to aid hospital patients, it has since been used effectively by a wide range of people from all walks of life

MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

This is one of the best things about MBSR: it's accessible for just about everybody
- Jon Kabat-Zinn

In fact, according to the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, more than 24,000 people have taken advantage of the MBSR program the center debuted in 1979 (Center for Mindfulness, 2017)

Technological & Practical Needs
For the best possible experience in taking this course online, we use Zoom, a video conferencing application that you can sign up with for free. To work best Zoom has minimum requirements that include having a tablet or computer with speakers, microphone, and video capabilities, and a high-speed internet connection.

To be able to create the physical space and time you need to engage fully in the weekly sessions and day of practice with minimal interruptions. This might include securing access to a quiet, well-lit room, where you can rest your computer screen and be visible sitting, lying down and standing and gaining family/housemate support that can allow you to join the sessions fully.
Each week participants also complete home practices: practicing the exercises that have been learned that week using guided instructions from audio (MP3/CD) recordings that take up to 45 minutes each day and informal practices. The daily practices ensure that learning is based on participants' own experiences

Perception and Creative Responding. Exploring Mindfulness
How we perceive the World and Ourselves
How we see (or don't see) things has a major influence on how we will react or respond to them. In this session we explore how we perceive the world and the relationship between our interpretation of something and what is actually there

Well-being seems to come as much from the approach we bring to our experiences, as from what's actually happening and what we decide to do next. It is not so much the stressors but our perception of those stressors, and how we handle them, that influences the short- and long-term effects on our minds, bodies and overall health

If we can cultivate healthy approaches to our experiences, we will probably feel better, no matter what is going on. We may have no control over things that happen in life, but we do have some say in our attitudes

The attitudes that we explore in this session are like seeds and just as seeds can flower when tended, these attitudes can grow - if we nurture them. Through the regular practice of the body scan and awareness of breath meditations, we hold a key to transformation; in the gentle practicing of kindness to whatever appears in our present moment experience

However we are feeling, the very fact of knowing and being willing to experience it, even for just a moment, makes the situation workable. We do not have to struggle, force or badger ourselves to become aware, or judge ourselves for having wandered off into automatic pilot and our habitual ways of reacting, instead we practice learning how to just notice and to come back

This process of noticing, and choosing to come back again and again, is the heart of mindfulness practice
