Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979, the MBSR course is considered the gold standard of research-based mindfulness training programs. Mindfulness is an inherent human capacity that can be developed and strengthened. The course consists of 9 sessions plus an orientation session and offers a systematic method of cultivating mental clarity, well-being, and insight through guided practices, gentle mindful stretching, self-inquiry techniques, mindful listening practice, and group dialogue. Students will explore mind/body strategies aimed at enhancing self-awareness and resilience to manage the stress of daily living. Mindfulness training has been utilized as a highly successful adjunct treatment for individuals who deal with illness and chronic pain as well as anxious mood states.

Irvington is accessible via the greater New York Metropolitan area airports: LaGuardia, JFK and Newark International Airports as well as the local-based, Westchester County Airport and Stewart Airport.
Westchester County Airport
240 Airport Road, White Plains
This is the closest airport, about 30 minutes drive. Rental cars are available.
Stewart International Airport
1180 First St, New Windsor, is another alternative to the congestion of the 3 major airports, but at present offers few direct flights.
Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport:
The three major international airports in the New York City area offer service to just about anywhere. Westchester-based taxi and livery cars offer regular service to and from the three internationals from most areas of the county. New York City yellow cabs will take to you to Westchester in a pinch, but the fares can be exorbitant. If staying at a hotel, ask if your hotel offers shuttle service.
