The orientation is important to attend. It is a chance for you to hear a course overview and learn some of the history behind the development of this outstanding program.  It is also a tried and true measure of deciding if MBSR is right for you. You do not need to pay in full for the classes until orientation night. 





The MBSR program enables participants to learn and develop powerful inner resources for coping with stress, anxiety and uncertainty while enhancing stability in the midst of difficult situations. The result of which is greater health, balance, ease, clarity and peace of mind.
Participants will experience and learn guided instruction in mindfulness meditation, gentle stretching and mindful yoga, methods of mindful communication, as well as both group and individualized instruction. 

Founded in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, University of Massachusetts Medical School Professor Emeritus, the internationally acclaimed Stress Reduction Program is the place where the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) all began. To date it has given rise to over 750 programs worldwide, as well as led the way toward over 30 years of research to substantiate its effectiveness.

This carefully laid out program closely follows the current format used by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. It will enable participants to continue on with what they have learned long after the 8-weeks are over. The class itself is highly supportive and well structured and the instructor, who was trained at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, is well versed in guiding the program.

Potential students should contact the instructor as soon as possible to register, as space is limited.  Please call 603-801-8945 or use the email link above in the information box. 

PLEASE NOTE: This is the traditional, consecutive 8-week program that was developed and launched by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn over 30 years ago at the University of Massachusetts Medical School that to date has given rise to well over 750 MBSR programs worldwide. The instructor for this program, Cecilia Howard, was professionally trained to teach MBSR and completed both the practicum teacher training at UMASS Medical School  and the 7-Day MBSR Professional Training Retreat for health care providers and educators: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in Mind-Body Medicine led by Jon Kabat-Zinn,PhD. and Saki Santorelli, EdD, MA. Cecilia is a long time meditator and yoga practitioner, having practiced both for over 21 years. In addition to this program, she teaches meditation classes for the Town of Bedford, teaches Mindful Living classes at Goffstown HS  through the Adult Education program and runs a mindfulness meditation practice group that meets at BYPC in Bedford once a month on a Sunday from 10AM to 11:15AM. She is also a professionally trained and educated artist, writer of a Blog called The Mindful Matrix and a former banking and sales/marketing professional who in addition to her early management career, developed and taught a myriad of leadership, business development and team building programs. She is a trained public speaker and true motivator. Her humor and enthusiasm,  as well as her open-minded approach to life are invaluable assets to her when teaching or guiding students.
