Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

images-1Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program that introduces you to mindfulness practice in the form of sitting meditation, body awareness and mindful movement, modeled by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD.

In October of 2015, the British government published a promising report on mindfulness. Earlier that year, Mindful magazine published an article about this initiative, UK on the Fast Track to Becoming a Mindful Nation.

The MBSR program at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine includes a free information session and a 30-minute private interview with the instructor before the first class. Attending an informational session is strongly encouraged. Each class also includes one all-day session on a Saturday or Sunday.

Note: Total in-class time is 31 hours over 8 weeks.
Classes often fill to capacity, and advance registration is required.

Fee: $375 tuition + $35 for materials
$335 tuition for UCSF faculty, staff and students
$300 tuition for MBSR alum

PLEASE NOTE: If you already own a copy of Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, please enter FCL16 into the coupon code field when registering, as this will deduct $16 from the total materials fee.
