MBSR Participants were enrolled in 7–10 person groups that met weekly for 1.5-h-long sessions for 8 weeks at an interdisciplinary movement disorders clinic in a large, private room. The program included a half-day (4 h) silent retreat taking place approximately 1 week after the eighth session to encourage participants to deepen their practice by providing time for longer practices in a group setting.
