MIND AND BODY MEDICINE PROGRAMS AT INTEGRATED BEHAVIORAL SERVICES
Manage Your Stress in 8 weeks
Integrated Behavioral Services and Mind Body Medicine Center is pleased to offer a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program facilitated by Geraldine Wu MD
Course Schedule: Thursdays, JANUARY 14TH through MARCH 3RD , 6; 00- 7: 30 PM
What is mindfulness and what can it do for you?
Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment, without any judgment to whatever arises in this moment. Mindfulness can be learned through simple small practices of meditation, whereby one learns to become awareness of the full spectrum of feelings, and emotions in our daily lives. This reduces symptoms of anxiety, rumination, depression, and stress. Our program is based on Jon Kabat Zinn’s MBSR and John Teasdale’s MBCT and consists of meditation, education, breathing exercises, gentle stretching, discussion and homework.
