Mindfulness exists in the awareness of each moment.
Are you present right now, at this very moment? Or is it difficult to stop the chatter and thinking? Can the practice of being present moment to moment change how I feel? Bob Stahl, Ph.d., MBSR teacher and author of the MBSR Workbook, joins us for part two of our conversation on mindfulness and the benefits of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
MBSR is an intensive 8-week group program in which people learn and practice mindfulness meditation, mindful yoga, and mindfulness in daily life. The program was created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, of the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and has helped people gain tools, skills and experience in reducing stress and suffering. People all over the world are practicing MBSR in hospitals, schools, their homes, veteran centers, and even in the United States Congress, led by the efforts of one congressman from Ohio. You too can learn and access the benefits and resources through an Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR course).
As Bob Stahl’s meditation teacher once told him, “Being mindful one moment is better than living one hundred years without being present.”
