The Jupiter Medical Center Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program consists of eight weekly classes and one all-day class. There are 31 hours of direct instruction. To fully benefit from this program, you must be willing to make a strong commitment to attend all classes and to practice daily home assignments for eight weeks. If you are unable to attend your regularly scheduled class, we encourage you to make up the class by attending a different class that same week.
The All-Day class is an intensive 7.5 hour session of mindfulness practices intended to assist participants in firmly and effectively establishing the use of mindfulness across multiple situations in their lives, while simultaneously preparing them to utilize mindfulness far beyond the conclusion of the MBSR program.
This day-long guided retreat will take place between weeks six and seven. The intensive nature of this session is intended to assist you in firmly and effectively establishing the use of MBSR skills across multiple situations in your life, while simultaneously preparing you to utilize these methods far beyond the conclusion of the program. Having established a daily mindfulness practice during the previous 6 weeks, you will be better prepared to benefit from this retreat.
Things to remember:
All sessions are held on a Saturday from 8:45 am to 4:30 pm and are open to all MBSR participants who have previously completed the MBSR program.
