Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course

Julie Chippendale of Mindful Living is happy to announce her upcoming Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR) being held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday evenings beginning May 8 and running through June 26 in Encinitas. This evidence-based program has been around for 35 years and teaches participants how to lead a more mindful, compassionate life.

The eight-week course is ideal for individuals who are interested in being an active participant in changing their health and attaining a greater sense of well-being.  “It is designed to guide you in becoming familiar with how your mind works.  While ‘control’ is not the goal of MBSR, you may begin to see that you have more choices as to where and how you give your attention,” says Chippendale. “We all have worries, concerns and fears. We live in the past and the future with our mind. Learning to live in the present is where all possibility and growth resides.”

According to Chippendale, the course is eight weeks in duration because research has shown that it is the minimum amount of time for the anatomy of brain to change enabling an individual to change behavior.

Location: Scripps Memorial Hospital-Encinitas Conference Center, 354 Santa Fe Dr., Encinitas. For more information, call 760-944-7735, email or visit
