Eus3 in Collaboration with the Organizers Nirakara Mindfulness Institute

We have the honour of hosting CFM senior teachers who will come to Madrid to offer the “Mindfulness Tools” a 5-Day Residential Intensive Program. 


The Center was founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1995 and has been directed by Dr. Saki Santorelli since 2000. Since the inception of the Center’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic in 1979, more than 20,000 people with a range of medical and psychological conditions have completed MBSR training at UMass. Worldwide, with programs on six continents, tens of thousands of people have participated in MBSR programs. More than 14,000 health-care professionals from 80 countries have participated in the Center’s Oasis Institute professional education and training programs. Globally, there are more than 740 places offering MBSR programs in clinics, hospitals, and academic medical centers based on the model developed at UMass.

In the past five years, there have been nearly 2,000 papers about mindfulness and MBSR published in the scientific literature. Dating back to the inception of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic, MBSR research at UMass and at other academic medical centers has shown, among other benefits, consistent, reliable, and reproducible demonstrations of major and clinically relevant reductions in medical and psychological symptoms across a wide range of medical diagnoses, including chronic pain conditions, over the eight weeks of the MBSR program. Maintenance of these changes continues, in some cases, for up to four years of follow up. Most clinic participants experience long-lasting improvements in both physical and psychological symptoms, as well as major positive changes in health attitudes and behaviors and in perception of self. Studies have also shown changes in the brain and the immune system consistent with greater mental and physical health.
