Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is highly respected in the medical community and is not offered as an alternative to medical treatment but rather as an adjunct, complementary program to enhance the effectiveness of medical treatments.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction was first formalized by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, who is the author of Full Catastrophe Living as well as other books on mindful living.
MBSR is an 8 week class, meeting for two hours.
