The MindSpace Clinic continues to offer the popular 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program (MBSR) in English in Westmount. The group is held at the MindSpace Studio on Greene avenue, right around the corner from Atwater metro. Join us to experience the evidence-based program that can help decrease stress and anxiety, lift mood, improve focus and clarity, and promote overall health and well-being!

Orientation Session

The mandatory orientation session is an important final step toward your enrollment in the MindSpace Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program. The orientation session is included in the cost of the program and is required of all participants before beginning the program. The orientation session provides the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the MBSR and ensure that it’s the right fit for you
  • Meet the group instructor(s)
  • Meet the other participants in your group
  • Find out about the methods and approaches you’ll learn during the program
  • Ask your questions about the program
  • Finalize your registration

Participants will hear a group presentation about the MBSR program and have a short interview with an instructor to ensure that MBSR is a good fit. In the event that the instructor believes that MBSR is not a good fit, you will be offered other options and a complete refund of your registration fees.

NB: Online registration for MBSR closes one week before the course begins. If you wish to register after that time or wish to be on our waiting list, please contact and we will accommodate you if spots are available.
