MAHWAH, N.J. — The Krame Center for Contemplative Studies and Mindful Living at Ramapo College is offering two summer sessions of the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course with free orientations to the course on Tuesday, May 23 and Thursday, June 1.

Many physicians are turning to mindfulness practice to help their patients find relief from conditions including asthma, chronic pain, gastrointestinal stress, high blood pressure, anxiety and panic episodes, sleep disturbances, stress and heart disease. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat Zinn, brings a form of meditation known as mindfulness into the medical mainstream. Learn how to take better care of yourself and mobilize your own inner resources for coping, growing and healing. Develop an awareness of the body and emotions and thoughtfully respond instead of react to situations. Learn to focus attention in the present moment.

There is also a 5-Day Residential Intensive MBSR course called “Mindfulness Tools” from August 10-15.  For more information or registration, visit
