MBSR-CC is suitable for those with little or no mindfulness experience. The demands of this course are sensitive to those experiencing chronic pain or other chronic diseases. It is accessible to anyone who may require a slower pace.
The first MBSR-CC program will start in the Fall of 2021 (Sept. – Dec.). There will also be Winter (Jan. – March) and Spring (April – June) sessions. The MBSR-CC program runs for 12 weeks with one 2½ hour session each week.
To participate, please request that your family physician, or other medical specialist (an MD) fax a referral to (905) 338-2717. We will then call you directly to book an individual assessment appointment (covered by OHIP). You will be assessed by Dr. Ang, Dr. Macdonald, Dr. O’Malley or Dr. Treyvaud for the MBSR-CC program. If MBSR-CC training is recommended, you will be put on the list for the next available program.
Except for an optional fee of $35.00 for course materials, these programs are covered by OHIP.
The course materials include a download of meditations and a handout.
All sessions are held online.
