Room 216, 2nd floor
ROOM CHANGE: NEW ROOM is 201

Call 603-801-8945 or email cbhoward@mac.com to register.

Please, no calls to the school. The instructor Cecilia Howard must be contacted directly to register

Your name, phone number, and a preferred email address is the only information needed to register for orientation. It is perfectly fine to leave this information as a message or email. You will receive a phone call or email in return, welcoming you to the session!

If you have been wondering what MBSR is and how it may work for you, THIS is a great time to explore the program.

You will hear, first hand, how and why the program was started at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and learn something about where this successful program is today.

You will also learn how the classes are typically structured, plus get to experience a bit of the meditation and gentle stretching that is a key component of the program. There is ample time for questions and answers as well. So, it is a great way to introduce yourself to a program that has been so well-researched and has provided so much support, to so many in the 30 plus years since it was introduced by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD.

If you decide to enroll in the spring MBSR session that starts on March 5,th you will need to pay for the full, consecutive 8-week program at the conclusion of orientation or prior to the start of the first class, but only if you decide to become a participant. Please see prior post from January 7th on this website for more specific details as to course costs and much more.

The orientation class is required for all new, incoming Spring MBSR students BUT if you have to miss it, please make sure to contact the instructor to discuss other arrangements.

If you have to miss  the orientation, or are unable to attend, but still wish to be a participant in the Spring seesion, please contact Cecilia Howard directly, so that arrangements may be made to insure the necessary paperwork is completed, and all pertinent information covered with you prior to March 5th.

PLEASE NOTE:

TIME Magazine's NEW cover story for the week of February 3, 2014,  Vol. 183 No. 4, is entitled: "The Mindful Revolution, The Science of Finding Focus in a stressed-out, multitasking culture"

 

It details some of what an actual MBSR program is like, and interviews Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD as well as why more and more educators are incorporating aspects of MBSR training into their classrooms.  

Please, take a look!
