Welcome to Mindfulness Northwest

Mindfulness Northwest offers heart-felt, caring and insightful instruction in mindfulness to communities and organizations in the Pacific Northwest.

Mindfulness is the simple yet powerful ability of the mind to attend more fully to the present moment's 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.

Our classes,workshops and retreats are rooted in the well-researched Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), and Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) programs. These evidence-based programs have each been shown to be helpful with a wide range of stress and anxiety-based challenges and disorders.

We offer both community classes and workshops and presentations for organizations and professionals. Please read more about our Corporate Staff and Leadership Training and Healthcare Provider and Staff Programs.

Our community offerings are available in Seattle, the East Side, Everett and Bellingham areas. We also have online classes and retreats and offer customized versions of our programs to health care organizations and professionals. Note that although we cannot yet accept health insurance payments for our classes many employers will reimburse for wellness activities.


We hope you enjoy this 13 minute video on what mindfulness is including a 5 minute practice you can do right along with Tim.
