Mbsr Retreats

(See also: meditation.)

Mindfulness is a meditative tool which is used to address health issues such as anxiety, depression, and high blood pressure. Whether you’re dealing with the effects of physical stress or emotional trauma, mindfulness is a effective antidote for the modern condition—and it doesn’t demand subscription to a set of beliefs.

Yet, mindfulness tends to lead people down a path they might not expect. Although we might start out using mindfulness to remedy a specific symptom, we may also find ourselves drawn into the full scope of the Buddhist teachings.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was a pioneering program which brought Buddhist mindfulness into a Western medical context. Today, there are courses in mindfulness for beginners in most Western cities, and there are mindfulness retreats in exotic locations throughout the world.

You can also attend training programs in mindfulness, if you are interested in bringing mindfulness techniques into your own workplace or therapeutic practice.
