Mindful Meditation

Using Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) principles, our Hiruko Mindful Meditation instructors, guide the participants through the process of finding inner quiet, being still, calm, and powerfully present. MBSR was started by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Since its inception, MBSR has evolved into a common form of complementary medicine addressing a variety of health problems. Class session is typically eight weeks long, and silent mediation retreats are also offered.
