MBSR Class Expectations:
Before you enroll in the 9-week MBSR course we ask that you please consider the following time commitments:
•Participants are asked for a commitment to attend all eight evening classes and one four-hour long Saturday retreat.
•We encourage 45-60 minutes daily meditation at least six days per week for the full eight weeks.
Your commitment is essential. It is the practice of mindfulness meditation that will enable you to realize its benefits. This commitment can be a challenging one, and may require a lifestyle change. You may have to rearrange your schedule to allow time for daily practice, carving out time from other activities. Once you taste the benefits of MBSR, then you may find that maintaining a daily practice becomes easier and highly rewarding.
