Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week course for cultivating awareness and managing stress that is widely approved by the healthcare professions, and backed by scientific research. Our programmes are based on the MBSR course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in the USA, as well as the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale at the Universities of Cambridge and Toronto. The two approaches are very closely related.
Rooted in ancient traditions of meditation, mindfulness-based approaches teach simple ways to relate to thoughts and feelings more effectively, and have been used for over thirty years to help with stress, anxiety, and chronic health problems, as well as to promote resilience and general well-being. Clinical research has consistently shown that mindfulness is helpful for working with a wide range of conditions, as well as for optimising well-being. The MBCT course is recommended by the National Institute For Clinical Excellence for use in the NHS.
Our mindfulness courses, workshops and retreats are taught by Ed Halliwell , Ed is co-author of three books: Into The Heart of Mindfulness, Mindfulness: How To Live Well By Paying Attention, and The Mindful Manifesto. As well as teaching mindfulness workshops, courses and retreats to public groups and in organisations, he is co-director of The Mindfulness Initiative, which is supporting the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mindfulness to develop mindfulness-based policies for the UK.
