"I have been trying to meditate for a long time (over a decade) and this course finally helped me see that a daily meditation practice is the right thing for me and I can also see it as possible. As a busy mom and physician, as well as budding academic this gave me an important tool in my toolbox. Thank you Dr. Liang and Dr. Schiff!" - July 2020 MBSR participant

"Drs Schiff and Liang are masterful mindfulness teachers. What a life-changing class! Practice makes perfect and they are supportive mentors and instructors. Would highly recommend this course." Y Jockin MD

MBSR works in healthcare

A mindfulness course decreases burnout and improves well-being in healthcare providers
Int J Psychiatry Med. 2012;43(2):119-28.doi: 10.2190/PM.43.2.b.

Enhancing physician well-being with an MBSR course
Psychol Health Med. 2015;20(6):720-31

Enhancing Clinicians’ Well-being and Patient-Centered Care Through Mindfulness (MBSR)
J Contin Educ Health Prof. Winter 2016;36(1):11-6.doi:10.1097/CEH.0000000000000021

Evidence shows MBSR reduces clinician burnout, improves well-being, enhances meaning, and leads to more patient-centered care.

" I didn't know what to expect and I had no idea how you were going to keep us "busy" for 2 1/2 hours every week (AND, that doesn't even include the six-hour silent retreat!). The skillful manner in which you conducted the classes made it easy for me to stay engaged and participate in the discussions. Anyone looking to learn more about mindfulness and its ability to help regulate one's emotions and reactions will benefit from the class. The balance between activities was perfect... meditate, listen, share, repeat. Thank you SO much!!" July 2020 MBSR participant
