We are pleased to invite FSU faculty, staff, and students to participate in the Mindfulness-Based
Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program!

The stress we experience in everyday life and the demands of work, school, relationships, and other obligations can be overwhelming. One effective approach, substantiated by over three decades of research, to managing these and other stressors, is mindfulness-based stress reduction.

Introduced in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, mindfulness and MBSR have been shown to equip people to better understand and work with the stress in their lives – whether physical, psychological, or social.

Mindfulness is both a basic human quality and a powerful practice that gives you tools to build a foundation of clarity and calm in the midst of life’s rockiest times. From this place of stability, you can engage the challenges and joys of life with a renewed sense of energy and balance.

Thursdays: October 16, 23, and 30, November 6, 13, and 20,
and December 4 and 11
6:30-9 PM—FLITE 442

An all-day retreat is scheduled for Saturday, November 22.
