In celebration of the opening of Jupiter Medical Center’s Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness, the medical center is pleased to bring one of the nation’s foremost leaders of the Mindfulness movement to our region. Saki F. Santorelli, EdD, MA, will host free workshops about mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) at several locations.
The MBSR program was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and is a way for you to learn the “how” of effectively working with stress, pain and illness and discovering what it means to be healthy, resilient and capable of meeting the challenges and demands of everyday life.
Directed by Dr. Saki Santorelli, the Center for Mindfulness is a multi-dimensional endeavor in the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine, within the Department of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. In 1979, Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center to bring a form of meditation practice known as mindfulness into mainstream medicine and healthcare.
