Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week course to learn how to use mindfulness to consciously and methodically deal with stress, pain, illness, and the demanding challenges of everyday life.
MBSR is open to UPlan members. Spouses covered by the UPlan, even if they are University employees, are not eligible for the discounted rate or fee reimbursement. There is a limit of one lifetime reimbursement per class for UPlan members.
To receive a $200 reimbursement, you must attend at least six of the eight classes and a day-long retreat. The course fee that is paid up front is $350 or more, depending upon location.
