Connect with Inner Wisdom

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy


An 8-week course utilizing an evidence based, complementary mind-body approach to managing depression & anxiety.


Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) combines cognitive behavior therapy skills with mindfulness attitudes and practices to help participants relate more skillfully to their inner experiences. 

MBCT is an empirically supported program for preventing relapse of chronic depression and it is also proving useful in managing anxiety. 

Participants learn about habits of mind that contribute to distressing mood states and practice a new way of relating to them. People who have completed the course say it helps them recognize their habitual reactions and respond with greater self-compassion and confidence.

Courses are offered every spring and fall in the Kansas City metro. Schedule your FREE initial consult to see if the program is right for you.
