The January programming comprises two options: “Mindfulness Tools” (January 20-25) is a five-day program, suitable for newcomers to mindfulness-based stress reduction and for professionals who want to incorporate mindfulness techniques into their work. “MBSR Fundamentals” (January 20-29) is a nine-day program incorporating “Mindfulness Tools” and an additional four days of intensive training for aspiring mindfulness trainers.
