The Official Home Training in MBSR from the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society
In 1979, Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center to integrate meditation into the medical mainstream. His approach became known as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)—a powerful, effective way to reduce physical and mental suffering by cultivating the capacity for greater health, balance, ease, and peace of mind.

MBSR is a nonsectarian, scientifically researched approach that is in harmony with any faith-based tradition.
