Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn to help people suffering from chronic pain and illness reduce stress and improve their health and wellbeing.
By participating in this class, you will learn what meditation practices that work best for you, and bring mindfulness into your daily activities, work, self-care, relationships, and communication in order to reduce stress.
MBSR has been shown to support people with cancer, and also caregivers, in working with the side effects of their diagnosis and progression through treatment. Research studies and testimonials document MBSR can improve:
- Memory loss
- Shortness of breath
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
This class is open to all patients, survivors, and caregivers of Memorial Sloan Kettering.
*There will be no class on Monday, February 19th.
