The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program was founded in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts (UMASS) Medical Center.  It is the most well-researched mindfulness-based stress reduction program worldwide.

The MBSR offers intensive training in formal and informal mindfulness-based practices. It is an approach that combines meditation, dialogue, reflective inquiry, and mindful movement.

Immanuel van Tonder did his post-graduate studies in Mindfulness-Based Interventions at the University of Stellenbosch based on the standardized UMASS MBSR. The IMISA accredited course could have a profound impact on your life!

The MBSR course will be presented in person on eight consecutive Thursdays, 6 pm – 8 pm, from April 27 till June 16, 2022, plus a half-day retreat on June 11.
