Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Life Enhancement Course

April 12 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

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 will enhance your body’s natural adaptive healing ability and cultivate the mind’s clarity and insight.

This evidence-based program is based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s model. Mindfulness is ‘the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.’ It enables individuals to step out of ‘automatic pilot.’ and connect and respond to daily life with increased awareness and self-control.

The class format includes instruction and practice of mindfulness skills, mind-body exercises, group dialogue, and daily home assignments. In this program, you will receive the following:

  • Eight weekly classes of 2 hours each
  • Recordings with guided meditations and stretching practices
  • Access extensive handouts, reading lists, home assignments, resources, etc.
  •  This challenging, life-affirming course requires a solid commitment to maximal benefit. Your instructors are committed to and skilled at creating a safe, supportive, and deeply engaging learning environment.
