The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) retreat teaches the practice of mindfulness meditation and how to apply it to stress reduction and self-reflection. You’ll also learn how to use your inner resources to support health, healing, spiritual enrichment and personal growth.

This weekend will also provide opportunities for individual meetings with Mark for additional instruction, guidance and/or support. Beginners and experienced participants are welcome!
