Mindfulness IS a SUPERPOWER

This is a 10-week mindfulness-based program for stress reduction called Dialectical Stress Reduction (DSR). It invites individuals with a broad range of health conditions to learn the core skills of mindfulness meditation.  Participants in this group will develop ways in which to manage the current impact of stress on their day-to-day lives and to enhance their well-being over their lifespan. This program has been modelled after the original mindfulness-based stress reduction course (MBSR) developed by Dr. Kabat-Zinn and colleagues and by adding a dialectical approach, we can manage emotional/physical pain and stress by acknowledging and developing an understanding and acceptance of our opposing feelings or beliefs residing in our minds at any given time.
