Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management


Workbook and Downloads

Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management (MBCSM) Workbook

This workbook was newly created in 2017 to be parallel in the teaching of the original Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM™) course, as most of what is covered in the original course is just as relevant for those suffering from stress and stress-induced conditions. Facilitators trained by NNC to run the pain course can also run this course just with this workbook and the meditations created to accompany this course.  Alumni from the pain course may also work with this workbook  and find it a useful revision.

This course is also relevant to busy workers, and may help prevent stress-related challenges.

Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management (MBCSM) Downloads:

These downloads of meditation practices have been created to accompany the Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management course, which was newly created in 2017 to bring to participants who feel stress is a greater issue for them rather than pain. An added bonus is the poetry which can be used to encourage thoughtful discussion during this course, two of the poems helping with the concept of being mindful (download 1) and two poems to shed light on the formal practices of body scan and guided imagery (download 2). Alumni of the pain version of our courses will appreciate having these meditations too. [Mindful Movements is a repeated track from the pain downloads/CDs though, as it is relevant to both courses.]  Music plays quietly behind the introductions and the poetry. It is not used in the formal practices: music would be too likely to act as a distraction from simply being open with awareness to whatever arises during the guidance—
