Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Returns

Life can get very hectic and stressful. Finding time to wind down and mindfully focus on the present moment can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know where to start. Enter the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8 Week Training.

MBSR teaches mindfulness practices including meditation and mindful movement to reduce stress, increase health and well-being, and live with more ease, joy, and power. Weekly classes help you integrate mindfulness into your life. Daily practice with recorded guidance, deepens discipline and refines skill.

The 8-week training, led by Amy Ward Brimmer, M.A., will be held on Thursdays from 6:30pm-9:00pm April 2nd-May 21st at the Holy Redeemer Hospital Health and Fitness Center. An all-day retreat for participants will be held on Saturday, May 9th.

Amy says many participants report they feel they have a more positive relationship with their own self. They become kinder, less critical and more patient with themselves.

“I have learned that taking time out to be still, even for a short period, allows me the opportunity to reflect on the moment, my busy day and relax enough to feel gratitude,” a participant said.

Many people may be wary of the eight-week, two and a half hour time commitment but if you’re on the fence ask yourself, “How are things working out for you right now?” A lot of people say they don’t have time, but after careful examination of their time, realize they spend several hours watching television or exploring social media. That time could be spent learning MBSR. It is an investment, a promise you make to your future self to live a less stressed life.

“MBSR is for anybody. Try it out and see what happens,” Amy said.

A sliding fee scale is available for registrants. For additional information and to sign up for the course, contact Dr. Hartman at 215-914-2111 or email: hrhsmbsr@gmail.com or Amy at 917-216-5850 or email: amy@wayopenswellness.com
