The UNC Mindfulness-based Program for Stress and Pain Management offers meditation and mind-body awareness training that will teach you to slow down, set priorities, and stay calm, focused, and relaxed during a busy life. These practices can enhance your body’s natural adaptive healing ability and help cultivate the mind’s clarity and insight.

This evidence-based program is structured on the model developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at UMASS, which is considered the “gold standard” in Mindfulness courses internationally. The curriculum has been widely researched, with positive outcomes for many physical and psychological issues. Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.

Participation in this course will provide you with methods to slow down, step out of autopilot, slow the ruminating mind, and connect to daily life with increased awareness and insight.

This 8-week course suits beginners and those with regular Mindfulness practice. It is an educational program, and your instructor is committed to and skilled at creating a safe, supportive, and deeply engaging learning environment.

Included in your Course:

  • Course Reading Material and Homework Assignments
  • Guided Meditation Recordings
  • On-line access to the Instructor for Guidance throughout the Course
  • A Full Day Outdoor Retreat at Camp New Hope Conference Center in Chapel Hill
  • Opportunity to attend  Saturday morning “Booster Sessions” every other month.
