Mindfulness Based Stress Management is based on the principles of mindfulness, which involves paying attention to the present moment with a spirit of inquiry and non-judging acceptance. It is a way of being with things as they are. This kind of awareness supports us in responding skillfully to our internal and external experiences, whether we like them or not.
Mindfulness meditation is the core of Mindfulness Based Stress Management. Scientific research suggests these practices can help us respond to stress, improve our physical, emotional and mental well-being, positively impact our relationships, and improve our ability to focus and concentrate.
Mindfulness Based Stress Management is a 6-8-week structured group. If you are interested in participating in Mindfulness Based Stress Management, telephone CAPS at 274-2548 for more information or come to CAPS to initiate services and schedule a pre-group meeting.
