OMC new room

Mindfulness-based Symptom Management (MBSM)

Mindfulness-based Symptom Management (M4-Core) is designed for individuals experiencing stress related to life events (relationships, work, family, depression, anxiety, loss, etc.). Over 8 weeks, each weekly session focuses on cultivating mindfulness skills through the following themes:

  • body awareness,
  • understanding our perceptions of ourselves, others, and the world,
  • cultivating tolerance of distress, and
  • transforming reactivity into respons-ability.

In the MBSM program, you will learn

  • the fundamentals of mindfulness practices
  • how to become more aware of the mind-body connection
  • mindfulness-based stress awareness and coping skills
  • how the Five Skillful Habits can support your values and how to live in line with those values
  • self-care strategies that go together with mindfulness skills
