Mindfulness is a particular way of being present in one’s life. Through the mindfulness practices, we can learn to cultivate awareness, reduce stress and live life more fully.

This Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program provides a structured format for looking more deeply into oneself thereby supporting positive life changes. The essential outcome is to provide participants with simple tools to practice, incorporate and apply mindfulness in everyday life. Through committed participation in the program, the participant may begin to gain access to inner resources for coping with stress and allowing positive changes.

Mindfulness provides us with an ability to approach situations with a calmer baseline and respond more skillfully to difficult experiences, resulting in overall personal growth and development. Participants also often report improved energy and enthusiasm for life, decreased hostility and rumination, more effective coping with chronic pain, and increased overall life satisfaction.

Instructor: Paula Huffman, BS, RN, ERYT, Mindfulness Instructor and Adjunct Faculty UNC Program on Integrative Medicine
