MBSR Classes Return This Fall
An eight-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class designed to help decrease stress and improve health and well-being will once again be taught by Scott Sweet, LCSW, LCAC, this fall. Classes will begin the first of September, with options to participate from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays starting September 9 and 8:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays beginning September 11. An all-day silent retreat will be held on October 20.
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 19, 21 and 26 at CenterPoint Counseling, in Indianapolis.
MBSR teaches participants ways to live in the present and fully enjoy life as it happens. Sweet utilizes the training he received at the Center for Mindfulness for attendees to gain increased awareness of their own habits and learn to use the wisdom of their own body and mind to handle stressful situations through gentle stretching and yoga, readings, mindfulness meditation practices and group dialogue.
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.
