Founder and President of StressCare
David Weinberg, M.P.A., teaches the StressCare 8-Week Course in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and a StressCare post-program course, Advancing In Stillness. He leads retreats for healthcare professionals, psychologists, and other people who have a deep commitment to healing and to living a full and satisfying life.
David founded StressCare in 1996 after completing clinical training in 1994 with Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center Stress Reduction Clinic (now known as the Center for Mindfulness). David is recognized as a distinguished teacher of MBSR by the Center for Mindfulness.
David has practiced Zen meditation since 1978 and is ordained in the Soto Zen tradition of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. He is the founder and head teacher of Ocean Sangha, a Zen practice group meeting weekly in the East Bay which is open to StressCare alumni.
David has a long-standing commitment to mindfulness practice as a way of life, and is known for his insight, humor and compassion. He is a proud father and can occasionally be found flying a Citabria or Cessna over the Bay. He invites you to join him on the mindful path of profound health and well-being.
