Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Training

Mindfulness Training offered to CABQ employees

What’s The One Thing That’s Standing Between You And Living The Life You Want?

You might be surprised to know it’s one thing and one thing alone: stress. It’s the worries, the fears, the self-judgments, the endless rehashing of the past and rehearsing for the future that’s eroding the quality of our happiness, and therefore our lives.

Most people have never been taught how to more skillfully use their minds to create benefit for themselves and those around them. And left to its own devices, the mind tends to linger and loiter in unhelpful and unbeneficial places.

The City of Albuquerque, through its BetterHealth initiatives and Public Service University, is partnering with Michelle DuVal and The Mindful Center to bring city employees Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction training courses that can help employees live better and healthier lives.  Watch the video below to learn more about Michelle and see when the courses are being offered below!

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is the most researched meditation program in the world and is currently taught in 42 of the 50 states, at all the major universities, and in many of the Fortune 500 top companies across the world.  The program teaches participants a variety of mindfulness practices including those for greater rest and relaxation, focus and concentration, also breathing meditation, eating meditation, walking meditation, and more.  We’ll learn where stress is actually coming from and the science behind how it affects our bodies and minds…and how mindfulness can be applied to reduce our stress and increase our ability to effectively connect with others.

A Mindful Approach to Sleep with Michelle DuVal, MA, Director, The Mindful Center

Do you struggle with getting good sleep and rest?  Do you commonly wake up in the morning feeling groggy and unrefreshed?  You’re not alone.  60-70 million American workers suffer from some form of sleep issue.  The number one mistake that people make in regards to their sleep is to only ever think about it at night.  A Mindful Approach to Sleep broadens the perspective on sleep and brings awareness to how the most critical skill of meditation is the exact same response we are trying to initiate in sleep…letting go.  The course includes fundamental teachings on mindfulness, meditation, and the science of well-being, and we will learn that healthy sleep can be a by-product of a well cared-for life.
