Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

This 7-minute video, narrated by Jon Kabat-Zinn and others involved in the founding of MBSR, provides some interesting background about the MBSR course.

"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment." - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Lesson Description

Together, over the next 8 weeks we are going to cover the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course by Palouse Mindfulness. This online MBSR training course is 100% free to the public by Dave Potter, the creator of the Palouse Mindfulness online course and is a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction instructor. He received his training through University of Massachusetts Medical School where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness and is a retired psychotherapist with specialties in anxiety, stress, and trauma.

About the Creator

This course is normally a live course taught in person. However, I join Dave in the mission to share this material with as many people as possible. In Dave's words, "I am retired professional psychotherapist who has had a daily meditation practice for over 30 years, and when I discovered MBSR, I wanted to offer it to my clients and my community. I started teaching my twice-yearly in-person classes in 2004 and, as a service to my students, began to put some parts of the class online. I soon realized that with a little work, the material could be useful to people who are not able to attend a live MBSR class, either because of financial or geographical limitations..

* NOTE about other teachers: Much of the material in this course is drawn from the public works of other teachers and writers who share our passion for making mindfulness available to all. We're grateful to them for helping to make this free Online MBSR course possible. Those who have given their explicit written approval of how we've used their materials include Jon Kabat-Zinn, Thich Nhat Hanh, Tara Brach, Shauna Shapiro, Kristin Neff, Michelle Maldonado, Vidyamala Burch, Lynn Rossy, James Baraz, Ann Weiser Cornell, Daron Larson, and the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
