The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme is the most recognised and established mindfulness course, taught all over the world, and scientifically proven to help people cope better with stress, depression and anxiety. We're bringing this course to you through our web-based platform, where you'll be able to see and interact with the teacher and group live, just as you would in our regular space.

The course consists of eight, 2-hour sessions and a full-day retreat. Through guided meditations, group dialogue, individually tailored instructions and home assignments, you will learn the essential principles of mindfulness and techniques to build your personal home practice and access the wide-ranging benefits well beyond the course.  

The key learning points include:

  • A variety of formal and informal mindfulness meditation practices, which involve using the breath and body as a focus for being aware of our experience in the present moment;
  • Understanding the physiology of stress and how to self-regulate our moods, so that we are better able to pause in challenging situations and manage our responses more effectively.
  • Recognising the patterns of worrying and self-criticism that often generate more stress; and learning to relate to ourselves with a more accepting and kind stance.
  • Learning to have more mindful, and thus meaningful, communication, connections and relationships.
  • Developing practical self-care tools to help us thrive, perform at our best, and build resilience.
