MBSR is a program that leads to a state of mind or way of being called « mindfulness ». That mindset is beneficial to health and well being, because it helps to understand stress and its origin, to pacify the mind. This is a comprehensive but accessible program that extends over 8 weekly sessions, taught by a certified instructor, approved for in-service training.

[expand title = « MBSR, what is it? » trigclass = « expandablecontenttrigger »] Quote: « The meditation or mind training is understood by meditators as a process of familiarization with one’s own mental activity, leading to profound and lasting changes in cognition and emotion. » (Extract from Lutz, Lawrence L. Greischar, Nancy B. Rawlings, Matthieu Ricard and Richard J. Davidson published in 2004 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, 101: 16369 -16373 .) The MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) method is a highly practical program designed to gain experience of meditation, and was developed at the encounter of the historical holders of contemplative Sciences (oriental masters experts in meditation) and Western neuroscientists who have studied the effects of meditation practice. Indeed, several branches of science (neuroscience, medical sciences, immunology) now show that living mindfully, paying attention to what we are doing here and now, in the present moment, has very positive effects on physical health as well as on mental health. In particular, the study of the effects of MBSR program has resulted in numerous scientific publications showing the benefits of the program. The mindfulness meditation has positive effects on immunity, mental health, physical health and daily well being. See below Scientific evidence. The initiator of this program, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Professor University of Medicine and Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts said: « I like to think of mindfulness simply as the art of conscious living. »

[/expand] [expand title = « Scientific evidence » trigclass = « expandablecontenttrigger » id = « preuvesscientifiques »] The University of Wisconsin–Madison, the University of Massachusetts (whose research is reviewed here), and Princeton, Harvard and Berkeley, as well as centers in Zurich and in Europe, Maastricht, are conducting intensive research on meditation and its effect on the brain in the short and long term, and have shown that human skills can be deliberately cultivated by training the mind. A growing number of scientific studies also indicate that the practice of meditation in the short term reduces stress, anxiety, tendency to anger and the risk of relapse in people who have previously experienced at least two episodes of depression [Lutz et al. 2004] (see post on beinstitute.fr ) measured, during meditation, sustained and high amplitude self-induced electroencephalographic gamma wave and phase synchronization that were not present in the initial state before meditation. Eight weeks of MBSR meditation type, for thirty minutes a day, is accompanied by a significant strengthening of the immune system, positive emotions [Davidson et al . 2003; Lutz Greischar, Rawlings, Ricard, & Davidson, 2004; Ekman, Davidson, Ricard & Alan Wallace, 2005; Brefczynski-Lewis, Lutz, Schaefer, Levinson & Davidson, 2007] , and attention faculties [Jha & Krompinger Baim 2007; Slagter et al. 2007; Lutz, Slagter, Dunne & Davidson, 2008] , and a decrease in blood pressure in hypertensive subjects [Carlson, Speca, Patel & Faris 2007] , and accelerating the healing of psoriasis [Grossman et al. 2004] . Scientific research shows increasing interest in the study of the influence of mental states on health [Lutz, Dunne & Davidson 2007] .
