Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction group

Learn Mindfulness on Campus

Join VIU Counsellor Art Phipps for 8 weeks of mindfulness including a one day retreat. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is based on the work of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn who, in 1979, began to teach patients the fundamentals of meditation to aid in stress reduction. This program now has a body of research demonstrating its benefits for a wide variety of people.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Increase calm and clarity
  • Increase resilience and enthusiasm for life
  • Practice Mindfulness
  • Manage stress and emotions
  • Slow down to nourish and care for yourself

This group is free! A 30 minute pre-group interview is mandatory to join.
