MBSR

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction will help you learn to…

  • Approach life with greater composure, understanding and enthusiasm
  • Develop effective strategies to cope with short-term and long term stressors
  • Improve your capacity to manage pain and reduce pain in many cases
  • Enhance your ability to focus and concentrate
  • Develop a greater sense of resilience by recovering more quickly from challenging events

Improve Your Life

Charlotte meditation and mindfulness practices are growing and they span the globe with over 750 MBSR programs worldwide. MBSR will help you develop life-long tools to maximize your quality of life through enhanced awareness, even when you are facing stress, pain and illness.

Jon Kabat-Zinn says that “Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.” When we are able to really see this present moment, “The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.”

Mindfulness is not something that you have to acquire, it is a resource that you already possess which can be cultivated and grown over time. MBSR is a universal concept and a scientifically based strategy which works in harmony with any belief system. MBSR can help with stress from uncertainty about the future, work, school, finances, grief, aging, and illness.

How It Works?

Neural-pathways comprise of neurons that are responsible to connect distant areas of the mind. Through repetition and practice, these pathways are strengthened and thus, formed into habits. If your mind is trained to overthink & stress, it becomes a habit. On the contrary, mindfulness meditation rewires the mind to view thoughts, differently. It teaches you to focus, relax and thereby stop the ‘mental time-travel’ and ruminating about the past.
Even if you are not facing a medical issue, MBSR can improve overall wellbeing and enhance your health. According to the World Health Organization “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
