Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Classes

Mindful at Methodist

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction centers on a systematic method of meditation aimed at cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding. The practice of mindfulness helps you experientially learn how to take better care of yourself by exploring and understanding the interplay of mind and body. It mobilizes your own inner resources of coping, growing and healing.
This program has helped countless people in a wide range of circumstances. We believe it can be helpful to you, too – if you are willing to actively engage in your own health and well-being. Find out more at or contacting Michael Burnham at 901-763-0416 or

This 8 Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course offers a highly effective approach to reducing the negative impact of stress on our health, relationships, and peace of mind, while increasing our capacity to handle daily challenges with confidence and ease. Mindfulness meditation techniques are taught and practiced in a supportive class environment. This program has been taught and researched for over 35 years in top medical centers. It has been found to provide benefit for a number of stress-related issues, notably chronic pain, several health conditions, and symptoms of anxiety and depression.
