Mindfulness: A Radical Act

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a powerful blend of Eastern philosophy and Western science and is part of a growing movement toward healthier healing called Integrative Medicine.

Guess what- It works!

MBSR has proven effectiveness in the treatment of a range of psychological and medical conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic illness
  • Fibromyalga
  • GI distress
  • Headaches
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Skin disorders
  • Sleep problems
  • Pain
Current research is being conducted on the effectiveness of MBSR in smoking cessation and weight loss programs.

And have I mentioned that it feels good? 

Sit back and take a quiet moment to listen to Jon Kabat-Zinn describing Mindfulness.
