MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (Cantonese)

September 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm HKT

HKD4000 – HKD4500

Learn How To Manage Stress Effectively And Bring Joy To Life Through Mindfulness.

A secular and systematic mindfulness training program trusted by health care clinicians, corporates, schools and sports teams. This evidence-based 8-week MBSR: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (Cantonese) program in Hong Kong follows the exact original 8-week curriculum developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness, which has brought mindfulness meditation into the mainstream for 40 years. Through an experiential approach, you will learn how to cultivate self-care and resilience holistically through the interconnection of mind and body – and awaken your own inner capacity for better stress management, coping, and healing. Join now and surf the waves of stress more skillfully and confidently.

MBSR can help people who are coping with medical problems, job or family-related stress, and anxiety and depression. The majority of participants report lasting decreases in both physical and psychological symptoms. Pain levels improve and people learn to better cope with pain that may not go away. Most people also report an increased ability to relax, greater enthusiasm for life, improved self-esteem, and increased ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations.
