Mindfulness Institute Offers Mindfulness Based Stre ss Reduction

Jan 31, 2016 10:23PM

An eight-week curriculum developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaches people how to use the wisdom of their own body and mind to face stress, pain and illness. In this intensive training, you will learn to access and cultivate your natural capacity to care for yourself and find greater balance, ease and peace of mind. 

Classes take place on consecutive Thursdays, from February 9 to March 29, 6–8:30 p.m., with an extended practice on March 12, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Through these classes, you will likely increase your ability to cope with the challenges of everyday life by responding, rather than reacting, to stressful situations which can avoid more unpleasantness from occurring. You will also improve your basic physiological functioning, and you may even find yourself being more aware and vividly in touch with the present moment and the people around you. 

Mindfulness meditation is learned and practiced in this MBSR course. Sarasota Mindfulness Institute also offers additional programs to enhance and support a growing mindfulness practice such as mindful movement, sitting meditation groups, workshops and kids classes. 


Location: 1560 Dolphin St., Studio 6, Sarasota. Cost: $450. Pre-registration for MBSR is required. To reserve your space and schedule an interview, email [email protected] For more information on upcoming classes and events, visit that all can found on our website and calendar at
