Mindfulness Based StressReduction Classes Return

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes return at CenterPoint Counseling this fall with their eight-week program and one-day mindfulness retreat, with orientation sessions available the third and fourth week of August.

Classes are designed to help decrease stress, improve health and well-being and will once again be taught by Scott Sweet, LCSW, LCAC.

Classes will kick off in early September with options to participate on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and Thursdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. The all-day silent retreat will be held on Saturday, October 13.

Attendance at one of the four orientation sessions this month is highly encouraged prior to signing up for the MBSR program. The sessions will be held at various times on August 22, 23 and 29.

The benefits of MBSR include cultivating inner calm, maintaining perspective, bringing awareness to habits, creating a sense of spaciousness, lowering blood pressure and basal metabolic rate, noticing negative thoughts and their effects on stress, building up emotional and mental reserves for stressful times and living in the present moment.

Fee: $425. Location: CenterPoint Counseling, Second Presbyterian Church, 7700 North Meridian St., Indianapolis. For more information or to register, call 317-252-5518, email SSweet@CenterPointCounseling.org or visit CenterPointCounseling.org.
