MBSR stands for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

The program was started in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD in Molecular Biology at the Stress Reduction Clinic at Massachusetts Medical Center. It later became the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society.

It was initially created within a medical environment to reduce stress in patients suffering from chronic pain and different chronic diseases. Nowadays, MBSR is integrated in numerous hospitals and clinics throughout the world.

Within the years the method has seen a great success, and its use has been extended to all sectors of society: education, prisons, law schools and law firms, top level sports, and in the corporate world (Google, Target, Asana, or Medium).

It is based on Buddhist Meditation principles and on research in integrative medicine, psychology, and neurosciences. It includes different types of meditation and yoga movements. It is taught in a secular environment, completely devoid of religious connotation.

2This course is completely new for me, which makes it enriching, exciting, and very stimulating, as I see the results day by day.
Having Manuel as my teacher gives me much peace as he is a great communicator, he has a lot of patience and he transmits peace…..
The fact of being in a group of gay men was something which was not relevant at the beginning, but I have found out that I feel much more relaxed, as I know that we, gay men, have something in common: a special sensitivity and feeling that we are all going in the same direction. That makes me feel great.
Thanks so much for everything.
