Over the period of 8 weeks — within a small group setting, meeting once weekly plus a one full day retreat — you will be provided with instruction and tools to bring mindfulness into your daily life.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an approach to self-care that can help one to deal with stress, pain and illness. The techniques that are taught help people to learn focus awareness on body sensations, thoughts and emotions in a non-judgmental way. Through this practice, a person becomes able to explore their inner world of mind/body, recognize and mobilize their inner psychological resources and take better care of the self.
This course is facilitated by Sue Ostapowich, a retired Psychiatric Nurse, who was inspired to take part in teaching practicums after attending an MSBR retreat for Mental Health Professionals. Practicing mindfulness has become a way of life for Sue.
The course fee is $300 (consideration may be given dependent on individual finances). To register, please email [email protected]
