New Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Class

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an 8-week course in August and September 2004 designed to teach people how to recognize stress and reduce it by way of daily meditation and yoga. It has been used by tens of thousands of people around the world for coping with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and other medical conditions.

Brian Shelley M.D., Department of Medicine, Section of Integrative Medicine, will facilitate the MBSR course at UNM Hospital.

No experience is required, but this course requires a large commitment of time and attention. Patients and staff at UNM and UNMH are encouraged to participate, but non-patients and people not affiliated with UNM are also welcome.

To register, call Patient Education at 272-2340. Information will then be mailed to you, and you can then attend a free Group Orientation Session before the course begins. You must attend a Group Orientation Session in order to register for the course.

The course will take place on Thursdays in August and September from 6-9 p.m. The course fee is $195 (includes more than 30 hours of course time, CDs for home practice, and a workbook). Not for profit. No tuition remission available. Scholarship information will be available at the Group Orientation Sessions.
