Enjoy the many benefits of the evidence-based MBSR program.
Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week program that has been scientifically shown to be an effective complement to a wide variety of treatments for these conditions.
In Imagine's MBSR classes you will learn to actively manage the effects of chronic stress on your life by learning mind and body awareness techniques.
Through mindfulness and meditation training we assist you to participate in your own self-care and contribute to your personal growth. Your concentration, creativity, and (self) compassion will bloom along the way.
“This course gave me the ability to recognize and act upon what was most affecting my life. By calming my mind and becoming aware of my thoughts, I was able to identify what was causing my anxiety, and the meditation practice gave me the tools to overcome it.”
— Tristan M.
