Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program

Koster Clinic  

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program that teaches practical meditation tools to help enhance our quality of life physically, emotionally and mentally.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program


The program was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in 1979 and is now being taught in 250 hospitals worldwide as well as in corporations, schools and holistic centres.  Research has demonstrated that regular mindfulness meditation practice brings about measurable changes in brain functions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. Studies have indicated that MBSR supports coping with:

Stress   Anxiety   Depression   Quitting smoking   Insomnia
Headaches   Chronic pain   Fibromyalgia   High blood pressure

The MBSR 8 Week Program 

  • Weekly instruction in mindfulness meditation in a non- religious context
  • Group discussions and activities enhancing everyday awareness
  • Strategies to deal with everyday challenges of stress, anxiety and chronic pain
  • Gentle stretching and mindful movement
  • Daily home assignments, work book and practice recordings
