MBSR –  Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction & Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn

MBSR is an evidence-based 8-week program that was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn nearly 50 years ago. MBSR is taught in hospitals, clinics and communities throughout the world. Mindfulness has been shown to be a learnable set of skills that can result in beneficial changes in the brain, the mind, and relationships.

For Free

Since 2008, PMI has been offering free mindfulness instruction to veterans, service members, and their families and partners. We offer classes in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as well as drop-in meditation classes and activities for VA staff and volunteers, for participants in The Tucson City Veteran’s Court, and for the community.

We began with half a dozen veterans per class, with classes offered four times a year. We now teach about 15 classes a year with up to 30 veterans in a class. We get referrals from the Southern Arizona Veterans Administration Healthcare System (SAVAHCS), the Tucson Vet Center, Davis Monthan Air Force Base, private providers, word-of-mouth, and our own direct outreach.

Let there be peace on earth, peace in hearts and minds…

one breath and one moment at a time.
