The Center for Courageous Living – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Janet Solyntjes, MA, CYT
“During times of transition, personal loss, intense emotional or physical pain, or any of the numerous circumstances that send our life out of balance; it can be helpful to have support on the journey towards greater calm and a deeper sense of well-being… MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) began in 1979 as the Stress Reduction Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. The program was featured in the Bill Moyer’s PBS documentary Healing and the Mind and is the subject of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s best selling book, Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of the Body and Mind to Face Stress. MBSR has been shown to: reduce depression and anxiety; increase focus and mental clarity; enhance and improve personal health; improve communication with others; calm the wildness of the "monkey mind”; foster courage in difficult situations; bring unconditional joy to daily life.
The MBSR foundation course includes 8 weekly sessions and a one-day silent retreat. Various mindfulness tools are learned and practiced in a group context with an emphasis on personal journey. The Center offers a variety of programs and retreats during the year.” Janet completed a professional training in MBSR with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli in 2002 and an MBSR Teacher Development Intensive at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 2005.

Palouse Mindfulness - Online Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Dave Potter - 1009 Tolo Trail, Moscow, Idaho 83843 email@example.com
“This online MBSR training course is 100% free, created by Dave Potter, a fully certified MBSR instructor, and is modeled on the program founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Here you will find a complete eight-week MBSR course, designed for people who are not able to take a live MBSR course for financial or logistical reasons. All of the materials used in the live course, including guided meditations, articles, and videos are freely available here. A live, in-person Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class is still the best way to learn mindfulness, because it is more likely that you will complete the course, due to the live interaction and group support. But doing an in-person course is not always possible, for financial and logistical reasons. This online course uses precisely the same course curriculum and resources that are used in my local in-person course, and if you follow the suggestions and practices for each of the eight weeks of the course, the learning can be just as deep and profound.”
“Dave Potter is a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction instructor and received his training through University of Massachusetts Medical School where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness.”
