Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Classes Begin Soon
Orientation sessions to consider attending either of two eight-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class programs will be held at 6:30 p.m. on August 18 and 8:30 a.m. on August 21 at CenterPoint Counseling, in Indianapolis. MBSR classes—aimed at decreasing stress and improving health through guided instruction and meditation practices led by Scott Sweet, LCSW, LCAC, and trained at the Center for Mindfulness— are being offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m. starting September 15 and from 8:30 to 11 a.m. starting September 18 at CenterPoint.
Attendees will gain increased awareness of their own habits and learn how to use the wisdom of their own body/mind to deal with stressful situations through gentle stretching and yoga, readings, mindfulness meditation practices and group dialogue. Attending either program includes an all-day silent retreat from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 25.
