Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction 8 Week Course
Description for 8 Week Course: Mindfulness isn’t so much a tool or technique, but a different way of being. When we pay attention to our present moments, we start to see ourselves and our world more clearly. Instead of being driven by worry, anxiety, or feeling pressured, we begin to choose our responses more wisely. We find our way to a more balanced and centered life, guided by our inner strengths and values rather than old habits and reactions. This 8-week series is a thorough introduction to the art of mindfulness, not only as a meditation practice, but more importantly as a way of life. It’s based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work in mind-body medicine originated at the UMass Medical Center. Presenter:  Sunada Takagi, MS, PCC is a certified instructor of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, a Professional Certified Coach, and an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Community. Grounded in over 20 years of training and practice in meditation and personal development, she offers workshops, retreats, and life coaching that seamlessly blend contemporary evidence-based methods with pragmatic approaches from the Buddhist tradition.
