This is an opportunity for you to hear everything you need to know about what the full 8-week class Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction might be like. This orientation is a required step prior to taking Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, but is not an obligation to take the class.

Mindfulness is a way to bring health, well-being, and vibrancy to our lives. This 8-week class was originated by Jon Kabat-Zinn and is supported by 40 years of research.

  • Have you ever wanted to start a meditation practice, or deepen an existing practice?
  • Do you know that your life is in need of balance, but you’re not sure where the brakes are?
  • Are you experiencing illness or pain and your usual ways of coping aren’t working?

Then MBSR may be for you. MBSR will give you experience in using many different tools of mindfulness that can be available to you in any situation. Because wherever you go, there you are! MBSR can also be a powerful adjunct to therapy or medical treatment, and has proven beneficial for chronic pain, various health conditions, or just simply “living the full catastrophe” of a modern stressful life!

Feel free to explore MBSR at this free no-obligation orientation, and you may sign up for the full (paid) course if you wish. The full 8-week course will be held LIVE ONLINE April 11 – May 30, 2023, with an all-day in-person/live-streaming retreat on May 20. The classes will be held live online, and the retreat is a hybrid event which you may attend in person in North Portland or virtually via live-streaming.

Dates and times are subject to adjustment.
