Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Online

Ann Arbor Center for Mindfulness will present an eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class that meets for two-and-a-half hours per week online from February 4 to April 1, taught by certified MBSR teacher Libby Robinson, Ph.D., MSW, and a founding member of the center.

            Basic concepts of mindfulness and a wide variety of mindfulness practices are learned, including mindfulness meditation and more informal everyday mindfulness practices that can be practiced anywhere at any time. The course includes audio recordings of guided meditations and handouts. Participants learn through guided meditations, discussions, daily mindfulness practices and a half-day retreat.

            MBSR is the mindfulness class developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn which has been extensively researched and found helpful in coping with stress, pain, depression, anxiety and chronic unhappiness.

The cost is $300 (scholarships are available), which includes recordings of guided meditations, handouts and a March retreat. MSW-CE credits are available. To register, call 734-476-3070 or email [email protected]. For more information, visit
