MBSR is a 8 week intensive training in mindfulness meditation for use in daily life and to help navigate life’s inevitable difficulties. MBSR is an evidenced – based program proven to be effective in helping to treat people who suffer from many challenges, including chronic disease, pain, anxiety, substance abuse, sleep disturbances, headaches, high blood pressure, grief and depression.

Mindfulness practice has proven to be effective in helping people lessen stress, cultivate ease and balance and promote a healthy lifestyle. Participants in MBSR will experience mindful sitting meditation, gentle yoga, walking, Qigong, listening practices as well as didactic discussions. The classes are based on a need for an active partnership in participatory medicine, one in which clients take a on significant responsibility for doing a certain kind of interior work in order to tap into their own deepest inner resources for learning, growing, healing, and transformation.

About Jackie:

Jackie Griffin worked as a registered nurse for more than 20 years, the mother of three is no stranger to stress. Griffin completed all the requirements through the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society to teach an eight week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction class, also known as MBSR. According to Griffin, the healing practice combines the ancient contemplative traditions of the east with the modern discoveries of western medicine. This melding of east and west runs true in her blood, having a mother from New Delhi and a father with German – Swiss heritage. Wanting something more to offer to her patients than pills and simply treating the symptoms of illness, she sees MBSR as going to the cause and giving people something sustainable that they can use throughout their entire life.
