MBSR – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Laurence Magro

Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979, the MBSR course is considered the gold standard of research-based mindfulness training programs. Mindful Awareness is an inherent human capacity that can be developed and strengthened. The course consists of 9 sessions plus an orientation session and offers a systematic method of cultivating mental clarity, well-being, and insight through guided practices, gentle mindful movement, self-inquiry exercises, mindful listening practice, and teacher-led group inquiry and dialogue. Students will explore mind/body strategies aimed at enhancing self-awareness and resilience to manage the stress of daily living. Mindfulness training has been also utilized as a highly successful adjunct treatment for individuals who deal with illness or chronic pain as well as anxious mood states.

Laurence Magro, MS, MBA, is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in mindfulness-based therapies and integrative approaches.  For the last 15 years as a practicing psychotherapist and mindfulness trainer with a personal yoga and meditation practice, she has drawn on Eastern contemplative traditions and recent western advances in mind/body research to inspire and empower people to help themselves.

Laurence holds a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and has received Teacher Certification in MBSR from the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School. She is versed in other mindfulness-based interventions such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and the use of mindfulness to relieve pain and restore wellbeing. She is the founder and director of Mindful Living NY, which offers counseling, training and consulting to business and healthcare professionals as well as to individual clients and groups.

  • Marla Del Collins says:

    I find it interesting– and a little troubling— that not much is offered in how foods—often “innocent” foods— can affect the mind-spirit-body—sometimes catastrophically or ever so slightly so that one can, let’s say, experience trepidation one day and confidence the next. The idea that foods and environment can impact the body and mood, needs to be integrated into workshops promoting growth towards fullest potential. It requires a holistic approach and the ability to intuitively sense each individual’s requirements for making the journey successfully. Take Care All, Marla Del
