Learn mindful ways to cope with stress, pain and illness

Led by Karen Sothers, MEd, RYT, our Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course at Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine offers intensive training in the use of mindfulness meditation and mindful yoga to help cope with stress, pain and illness.


The techniques and practices taught in this course complement conventional medical treatment and preventive health practices by mobilizing and strengthening your body’s innate resources for healing and responding to stress.


Closely modeled after the world-renowned stress reduction program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, our approach combines breath awareness, meditation, yoga and other mind-body methods to help you achieve serenity, health and well-being in your everyday life.
