Practice Meditation This Summer With MBSR
This summer, the Mindful Astoria community and the Astoria First Presbyterian Church will offer an 8-week course in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), the curriculum developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness.
Over the course of eight weeks, we will learn several different forms of mindfulness practices such as mindful breathing, walking meditation, and mindful movement. We will practice bringing mindfulness into daily activities, stressful situations, self-care, work, relationships, communication, and more.
