This Stress Reduction and Burnout prevention experience will allow you to build knowledge and skills to empower your life.
This intensive one on one program is based on the content of the famous MBSR program – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. It is design to provide you with simple and effective tools that enable you to identify and assess the decisions that are shaping your reality right now.

Perception influences deeply how we see and in consequence respond to reality.
