MBSR is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - scientifically proven effective for reducing stress, anxiety, and depression! A great class for stressed-out students and those suffering from work-related stress. Timed to coincide with the holiday season to help you get through it all with more grace.
Bring your open heart and desire to see what transformation eight weeks of mindfulness can bring you.
1.5 hour classes include guided meditation, mindful movement and creative work.
You will learn:
1. cultivate gentle yet sharp and clear awareness of the body and mind
2. apply your newly developing awareness from formal practice to your every day life
3. hold yourself (& others) with greater compassion & acceptance
4. work with "negative" emotions
5. create greater sense of flow in your life
6. find your own happiness right here and now
The best attitude to come to the class with is this: simply open curiosity to see what will happen. I can't tell you what will change for you, but I can promise you that if you commit to the course, something will indeed change.

Hillary is a graduate student, research and grad assistant in the Clinical Psychology department at Governors State University, called by some the Naropa of the Midwest! Her research interests include the applications of mindfulness in reducing stress, anxiety and depression.
She's been teaching mindfulness in schools, universities as well as corporate and organizational settings since 2008.
She believes one of the best things about mindfulness is that one need not "believe" anything to practice and achieve results. All you need is a good guide, yourself, your own breath.
