Mindfulness is best understood through practice, especially in community.  MBSR courses nurture awareness, compassion and balance in life.  These gifts are magnified through the shared practice, group interaction and presence and gentle guidance from Micki.  She is dedicated to holding the space where feelings of safety, connection and identification are possible.

To benefit fully from MBSR training, participants are asked to commit themselves to practice mindfulness meditation from 45 to 60 minutes per day, and are coached to work gently and patiently with this commitment. Read testimonials that speak to the benefits of making this commitment.

The course will be held at Mindful Living located at 3701 Kirby Drive, Suite 890, Houston, Texas 77098 in the Baylor Family Medicine building between the S.W. Freeway and Richmond Ave.(map)
