About the Event
Important: The course will be online, in Portuguese / O curso será dado online, em Português.
The MBSR course is very practical and accessible. It was created based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's work. He is a Professor and the creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic, as well as the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society from the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
This programme is based on the two most well known Mindfulness courses - MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy).
Now-a-days, various benefits of mindfulness have been scientifically studied and proven. Mindfulness is recognized worldwide by various organizations of note. The practice of MBSR improves and reinforces the immune system, making the relationship between stress reduction and quality of life improvement very evident.
The main objective is to help train the mind by using practices, competencies and attitudes that can be accessed on a daily basis, helping you to have a more positive and aware relationship with the suffering that the mind brings onto itself through its’ thoughts and internal representations.
Besides the 2, two and a half hour long, weekly sessions, the course also includes home work to be done between sessions and learning to use the Mindfulness Meditation techniques such as the Body Scan and simple Yoga postures.
A manual and some handouts will be made available, as well as guided meditation audio recordings to support your personal formal and informal practice at home.
