What is MBCT?


Mindfulness is an experience in which we become increasing aware of what is happening directly moment by moment as it happens. Mindfulness is the opposite of mindlessness, what most people operate as, resulting in sense of isolation, separation of self, going through life in a meaningless mechanical way in addition to creating psychological and emotional states which are directly related to illnesses such as depression, Coronary Heart Disease, Stroke, diabetes type II and even cancer.


MBCT is a course delivered over 8 sessions and usually followed by either a one day-long retreat or a weekend retreat. This highly participatory and life affirming practical course includes:


  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices

  • Gentle stretching and mindful Chi Kung (light gentle movements similar to Tai Chi)

  • Group dialogue and discussions aimed at enhancing awareness in everyday life

  • Individually tailored guidance

  • Personal home practice


The course is challenging and life-affirming. The instructors are accomplished and skilled at creating a safe, supportive, and deeply engaging learning environment.
