Mindfulness Programs

Now Offering the World-Renowned, 8-Week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programs (MBSR)

MBSR has helped thousands of people respond positively and effectively to psychological and physical challenges and stress in their lives. Through group and individual practices, discussions and presentations, participants learn tools and approaches for cultivating mindfulness. The program is systematic and highly experiential, and offers you the opportunity to fully participate in your own wellbeing journey.
Over 40 years of evidence-based research shows that MBSR is a powerful tool in the prevention and treatment of many physical and psychological health issues including chronic pain, high-blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and obesity.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is the creator of MBSR and internationally known for bringing this ground-breaking work into mainstream medicine in 1979. MBSR is now offered around the world.

“Mary was able to masterfully lead a small group of us through exercises to tap into deeper wisdom and knowing…. If, like me, you tend to make all your decisions with your head instead of your heart, go to one of Mary’s workshops- she’ll help you tap into a deeper wisdom and way of knowing for yourself.”
