We are providing this directory as a free service to help connect community members with Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses. We will list any teachers or organizations currently offering the full 8-week MBSR course in PA (see below) or NJ.
NOTE: We have not investigated the credentials or experience of these teachers and appearing in this list in no way implies endorsement of their courses.
If you are an MBSR teacher, please let us know if you would like the listing changed in any way. Also, if you are aware of anyone teaching MBSR courses in PA or NJ who is not listed, please contact us. We will be happy to add them to the list.
We would really appreciate it if you would take the time to fill out the information below so we can keep you updated in the future or answer any questions you may have. Privacy is important to us; we will not sell, rent, or give your name or address to anyone.
