This is the course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, taught in 700 + universities and hospitals worldwide. (See Full Catastrophe Living rev. ed, 2013)

Researchers have been studying the effects of MBSR for 30 years; more than 1,000 articles have appeared in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.

Mindfulness is the open, receptive awareness of present-moment experience. An increased ability to relax physically helps to stop the biological feedback loop that keeps stress in place. An increased ability to observe thoughts with perspective keeps those thoughts from driving—and amplifying—worry and fretfulness. The outcomes are often amazing. These may include: better sleep, less worry, less feeling of being “rushed,” a calmer, less hurried mind. Which in turn often lead to: less back and muscle pain, fewer headaches, better digestion, lower blood pressure, lower cortisol levels, increased energy and focus.

Mindfulness results in greater ease—and joy—in everyday life, regardless of the circumstances. It is simple, but it does take practice. The course offers a variety of ways to develop this natural ability, in 30 minutes –or 30 seconds. It can be practiced by anyone, of any age, at any fitness level, of any religion (or no religion).

Dr. Crum has been trained by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and participates in ongoing professional development through the MBSR Teachers’ Collective of New York.
