The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8-Week Program by EP (15 Apr to 3 Jun 2016)


What is Mindfulness?

"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally." (Kabat-Zinn,1994)

Mindfulness offers an inside-out approach to managing stress in today’s fast-paced life. It empowers you in letting go of distractions, worries and anxieties, while allowing you to attend to the moment as it unfolds.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program was developed in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts Medical School, for clients to manage their chronic symptoms. Mindfulness has since been brought into the contemporary and medical space. MBSR uses mindfulness practices to improve your state of physical and psychological health, and brings about more awareness to your daily living.


In each run, there are 8 weekly sessions, i.e. 15/04 (Fri), 22/04 (Fri), 29/04 (Fri), 6/05 (Fri), 13/05 (Fri), 18/05 (WED), 27/05 (Fri), 03/06 (Fri).
