Taking an MBSR course requires a commitment to a change in lifestyle. The class meets for two to three hours every week and participants are asked to engage in up to an hour per day of home practice. Many people who are interested in learning mindful awareness skills do not wish to commit to making the time for the full MBSR program, others may presently lack sufficient stability to make the necessary commitment.
We now offer a drop-in meditation class at the Tucson Vet Center (3055 N. 1st Ave.) on Monday evenings, 6 – 7:30 pm. This class may be perfect for people looking for basic instruction in mindfulness meditation and/or MBSR graduates who want to keep their practice alive.
Thank you for your interest and your referrals.
Dr. Teri Davis

Mindfulness Training Free To Veterans "You're Gonna Like The Way You Look"

Of all the therapeutic regimens and modalities I have experienced including TM, Gestalt Therapy, Biofeedback, Encounter Groups, Immersion Therapy, EST, Spiritual Retreats, VA sponsored PTSD programs; Mindfullness training and the consequent skill that is developed with daily practice, has more utilitarian impact on daily living than all the others. Given that conscious living is a soup dished up hourly, all the other philosophies and interventions are certainly of value, yet it seems as if Mindfullness just pulls them all together and adds to an equanimity that would otherwise not be accessible to the waking mind and all its friendly monkeys.


The teachers of this course are par excellance!

Teri Davis, ND • Executive Director
“It’s like the thoughts lost their hook,” says an OIF/OEF
veteran graduate of an MBSR class. “Before, they were just
ripping me. With mindfulness, it opens up the blinders,
and you realize (those thoughts) are
not the totality of your existence forever.”
