CCECS offering stress reduction series at UH-Hilo

The University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service announces the return of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction series.

Classes are from 1-5:30 p.m. every other Saturday June 3 through July 29 in the UH-Hilo Old Gym, with a retreat day from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. July 15.

Tuition is $150.

This in-depth program is taught by Bernie Schreck, a longtime instructor of meditation and mindful living. Participants will learn to manage the symptoms of stress, chronic illness or pain, and improve their quality of life through diverse techniques such as guided meditation, gentle, mindful yoga and breathing exercises.

Participants also will receive daily home practice assignments.

A “Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook” by Bob Stahl, Ph.D., and Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D., is required. Participants also will need to bring a yoga mat and light blanket.

Private and non-government employers/businesses can qualify for a 50 percent tuition waiver through the state’s Employment and Training Fund. For details, visit http://labor.hawaii.gov/wdd/home/employers/etf/micro and apply at least 10 business days before the start of class.
