Over the last couple of decades, thousands of research articles have been published establishing the efficacy of practicing mindfulness  as a way of reducing stress and improving medical and psychological symptoms. Stress has been associated directly with the development of chronic illness such as cardiovascular disorders, hypertension, obesity, anxiety and depression. 

People with the following conditions found the course extremely beneficial and reported significant improvements:  

Chronic stress (work, family, money) , anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, heart disease, high blood pressure, 

skin disorders, chronic pain, obesity and eating disorders, relationship problems


Mindfulness explores and deepens the mind-body connection allowing you to train the areas of the brain that help you deal better with stress and difficult situations, a process called neuroplasticity. Researchers at Harvard University have shown, using fMRI studies, that eight weeks of MBSR training leads to thickening of the regions of the brain associated with learning and memory, emotion regulation, attention and sense of self. These changes develop and provide access to inner resources that become your ally in improving your health and well being. Even the smallest manifestation of mindfulness can lead to an insight that can have huge health benefits.
