Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course

Register for Orientation

The orientation is open to all interested participants for better understanding of the course and a requirement for those registering for the course. This course is for women only.

Stressors are a common fact of life. In the well-researched MBSR course you will discover how you can reduce and prevent stress in your own life through formal and informal mindfulness practices.

A mindfulness-based approach to stress reduction emphasizes the helpful role that awareness and openness can play in facing stressors, and ultimately, leading a richer life. Rather than trying to make stressors disappear from life, or controlling them entirely (an unrealistic scenario!), we will try to learn how to become more aware of the stressors in our lives and how they impact us. Rather than rejecting or suppressing challenges in our life, we will try to investigate them openly. With kindness and self-compassion we will attempt to accept reality as it is in the here-and-now. On the basis of such openness and acceptance, and with the help of formal and informal mindfulness practices, we can then make wiser choices and develop thinking styles, behaviors and habits that are conducive to stress reduction and prevention, and to leading life more fully.

Trainer: Carmen Teo

Carmen Teo spent the first 15 years of her career in the corporate sector and had consulted for some of the largest F&B and Hospitality firms in the world. She started her mindfulness journey in the US in 2007 which accompanied her through a burnout and gradually transformed her into a mind-body practitioner since 2012.

Carmen is a versatile and highly qualified trainer being trained to teach MBSR under UC San Diego’s Center for Mindfulness, Workplace Mindfulness under TME (spin-off from Oxford Mindfulness Center), the .b program under MiSP, and Mindfulness for K-12 under Mindful Schools.
