To kick things off, there is a free introductory session being held on Wednesday, May 27th from 5 pm – 6 pm via an online Zoom video conference. During this session, you’ll learn what MBSR is and you’ll get to try a brief mindfulness meditation. More information about the full program will also be provided.

The MSBR Foundation Course, conducted through Zoom video calls, will more wholly explore mindfulness techniques. Participants will be encouraged to practice what they learn on a daily basis during the 8-week course.
