Visions HealthCare in Wellesley, presents an eight-week program on mindfulness-based stress-reduction this spring. The program begins with a free, no-obligation orientation at 7 p.m. on April 11 at Visions. “The Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction program designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn is gradually becoming recognized by the medical world as having positive effects on physical and mental health,” says Stephanie Travers, marketing coordinator at Visions HealthCare. “Our orientation offers a free opportunity to experience mindfulness, perhaps for the first time, as well as an effective way for frequent meditators to take their practice further.”
Visions’ mindfulness facilitator Patricia Howard says the eight-week program will enable people to take an active role in their health on all levels. “Most people are bombarded by their thought processes and they beat themselves up and belittle themselves,” she says. “In eight weeks they can learn to witness their thought processes without being driven by them.”
