Description MBSR teaches a practice of relating to experiences as they unfold moment to moment with acceptance and compassion.This attention has been shown to be powerful in accessing our innate capacity for health and healing.Previous research suggest that MBSR and mindfulness practices may be effective for medical professionals in reducing stress, increasing compassion, and decreasing burnout. MBSR is an intensive 8-week training in mindfulness, meditation and movement. Groups meet weekly for 2.5 hours and for a 7 hour, day-long session between weeks six and seven. Guided instruction in various mindfulness practices is provided, including: sitting and walking meditation, body scan, gentle yoga, and other guided meditations.
