MBSR Program for MEN

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week program created to bring forth awareness through paying attention to the present moment with non-judgment.

CCMF has been offering MBSR programs to its members for over a year, in partnership with Certified MBSR facilitators Bonnie and Wendy. Our program builds mindful awareness in all aspects of one’s life.  Throughout the program participants are guided through mindful movement, meditation, and exercises that assist in understanding how to respond to daily stressors in a positive and adaptive way.  The weekly 2-hour classes are enhanced by home practices which participants integrate into their daily schedule.

Our participants have reported that they are more readily able to cope with daily stressors and chronic pain as they develop habits of awareness. They have also witnessed having better sleep and have been able to make choices to respond rather than react to life situations.
