A distance mindfulness course with a difference.
Online | Thursday's 6 February - 26 March 2020 | $495 inc GST | 6:30pm - 9:00pm (AEDT)
We offer Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction by Distance education - live online - and we think you will find it quite different to other online options - in terms of dedicated attention from a teacher, time spent in actual practice and experience in the group.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based, user-friendly program that brings the principles of mindfulness meditation into everyday life by teaching specific skills and practices to help break cycles of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion.
Openground is proud to be endorsed by Emeritus Professor Jon Kabat-Zinn – who developed MBSR at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979 for people suffering chronic and acute stress, chronic pain and illness, and associated anxiety and depression. As seen on ABC Catalyst TV.
