Welcome to Mindfulness Northwest.
We offer mindfulness instruction, mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) courses, and professional development in the Pacific Northwest.
Mindfulness is the simple, yet powerful, ability of the mind to attend more fully to present moment experience. Cultivating mindfulness results in many benefits for mental and physical health, well-being, and happiness. Mindfulness works at the interface between the mind and our experience of our life.
Mindfulness Northwest offers heart-felt, caring and insightful instruction in mindfulness to patients, caretakers, health professionals and anyone with an interest. We currently offer classes and workshops to the Bellingham and Seattle communities, the University of Washington, Western Washington University, King County employees, several medical centers, and at other sites throughout the region. Staff and leadership development programming is also available.
Our programming is rooted in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class. Participation in MBSR has been shown to be a very effective pathway to learn mindfulness meditation practice. MBSR has been shown to be helpful with a wide range of stress and anxiety-based challenges and disorders. Most people experience an increase in well being and healthier response to stress. As a therapeutic practice it works well on its own and in conjunction with other therapies. Mindfulness Northwest offers a variety of programming based on MBSR.
