Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program Now Available in Dubai
The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) teaches practical meditation tools to help enhance quality of life physically, emotionally and mentally. 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.
