MBSR and its demonstrated effectiveness
MBSR has been proven to be effective by various research institutions, and is a program in which groups of a few to 30 people participate in sessions of 2.5 hours each and daily independent practice over an eight-week period. We will provide cognitive training through exercises centered on meditation and bodywork (yoga, etc.).
Many studies have been conducted on its effects, and it has been shown to be effective in reducing stress, reducing mental pain from chronic headaches and cancer, and improving immunity.

In partnership with the Institute for Mindfulness-Based Approaches (IMA: Germany), which has a track record of training more than 1,300 MBSR instructors in nine countries in Europe, we have partnered with the Institute for Mindfulness-Based Approaches (IMA: Germany) to deepen learning about mindfulness and provide practical training for implementing programs.

The course is a combination of three group training sessions in Japan and an online class, and can be taken in Japanese by an overseas instructor (English) through an interpreter.
By studying for a year and a half with professionals in various specialized fields such as medicine, education, and business in Japan, it will be possible to form a community to learn and teach mindfulness together.
