Origin of MBSR

MBSR is based on and infused with the qualities of non-judging, non-striving, acceptance, letting go, beginner’s mind, patience, trust and non-resistance. MBSR was originally developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre in the 1970s by Jon Kabat-Zinn for  patients  with a broad spectrum of physical and psychological challenges primarily chronic pain, chronic conditions, anxiety and depression related to illness as well as illness brought on by anxiety and depression.  His core insight was ‘ there is more right with us than wrong with us, as long as we are breathing ’.  So while we may have little control over the underlying medical issue we can choose how we are relating to the challenges in our lives, whatever they might be.  The original components of the MBSR course structure – a structured curriculum in an informal setting, a pre-course orientation, eight weekly two and a half hour  sessions and a full Day of Mindfulness retreat between weeks five and seven of the eight week course – have not changed in nearly 40 years.

 

Overview of the  MBSR Course

The course follows  a specific eight week group curriculum  that focuses on the progressive acquisition of mindful awareness skills  through the practise of meditation and body exercises.

  • A  two and a half hour session once a week for 8 weeks (Mon Feb 17th to Mon April 6th  10.30 to 1pm )
  • One day mindfulness retreat during the course ( Sun March 29th ) 
  • Daily practice of forty five minutes on all non-class days during the course
  • Informal at home mindfulness practices to be done as part of normal day to day routine 

Evidence based course

MBSR is by now a very well researched evidence based course. Research has shown that MBSR is beneficial to patients with medical conditions (including chronic illness and pain, high blood pressure,cancer, vascular and respiratory disorders and many others), psychological distress (including anxiety, panic, depression, fatigue, and sleep disturbances) as well as in preventative medicine and wellness programmes.  MBSR is now  part of a newly recognised field of integrative medicine within behavioural medicine and general health care.   A central tenet of MBSR is that we are active participants in our own well being, no matter what the condition of our body and mind.

Which conditions does MBSR help?

In addition to MBSR’s preventative and supportive role in helping us cope with everyday stress at work and at home, scientific studies have shown that it can be helpful in alleviating the symptoms and psychological distress of a range of conditions. These include

  • STRESS
  • Cardiovascular diseases (eg. High blood pressure),
  • Sleep disorders,
  • Depression and anxiety,
  • Burnout
  • Fibromyalgia,
  • Psoriasis,
  • Chronic Pain,
  • Cancer

Benefits can include:

  • An increased ability to recognise, understand and deal with stress, pain and suffering
  • Techniques and tools for being present in the moment
  • Greater awareness of the roles of appreciation and gratitude in supporting our wellbeing
  • Skills for developing resilience in deal with life’s challenges
  • Enhanced mental clarity and concentration
  • A greater connection with the peace, joy and wisdom that is within us and a greater ability to live in meaningful connection with others.
  • Experiencing how we can connect with our inner strengths and wisdom
  • Improved listening and communication skills
  • Learning to be kinder to ourselves.

Who is the MBSR Course for?

The course is participatory, supportive and structured and is open to adults of all ages and backgrounds who would like to invest in their own well being and happiness by learning to better manage stress, to live in the moment and to discover more peace and joy in our lives.

Clearing by Martha Postlewaite

Do not try to save the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing
in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
patiently,
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worth of rescue.

Finding Peace Where we are - Mindfulness and Cosmology

Event Information

Finding Peace Where We Are

The invitation of this retreat  is to open our hearts to the full reality of our lives as children and citizens of the Cosmos.   We propose to come to this openness through:-

  1. an increased awareness of ourselves through mindfulness, particularly through the practice of Loving Kindness, which brings us to a deeper understanding  of ourselves, our human society, the world, and the Cosmos,
  2. a deeper personal appropriation of the significance of the New Cosmology which has revealed to us our kinship with each other and with every being that ever was. We are revealed to ourselves as truly ‘stardust,’ and discover that we (as well as everything else within the Cosmos) have emerged from the original outburst of energy that we call (familiarly and affectionately) the ‘Big Bang.’

Our reflections on Cosmology  draw upon the work of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, Ilia Delio, and Judy Cannato, among others, and our mindfulness resources  include the writings of  Sharon Salzberg,  Satish Kumar, Tich Nhat Hanh,  and Francis Bennett.

Through the practice of mindfulness,  we hope to move to a deeper sense of the unity of all being, and of our place within Being.  In particular loving compassion will help us to deepen our wonder, joy and resilience as we discover the unity of all that is.
