Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
MBSR is an 8-week evidence-based, program designed to provide intensive and systematic training in mindfulness meditation and movement practices, and integrating into one’s daily life what is discovered and learned through the process of participating in the program.
A Mindful Approach to Depression and Anxiety
MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) combines training in mindfulness with principles from cognitive therapy. This work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that contribute to mood states while learning to develop a new relationship to them.
Through mindfulness meditation, exploration of perception and engagement with the wisdom of the body, participants are empowered to participate in their own health and well-being, cultivating a continuity of practice engendering stability, tranquility, focus, and resources for transformation.

Join Us to Learn More About Our Programs
An Information Session or “Info Session” brings together program leaders, teachers and participants for presentations and conversations about our classes and your goals. Info Sessions are held several times a year and are a great place to learn about available classes.
About Information Sessions
Info Sessions are open to all and are designed for people considering which class to take. Info sessions are great for people with general questions about mindfulness, too.
If you are new to mindfulness, looking to understand the difference between classes, or just want to understand more about a particular class, an Info Session is for you.
MHI offers two types of Info Sessions. We offer Information Sessions in collaboration with the School of Professional Studies at Brown, where you can you learn about MBSR and MBSR Teacher Training and we offer sessions for MHI programs where you can learn about our mindfulness-based and mindfulness-informed programming.
