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.
Our community offerings are available in Seattle, the East Side, Everett and Bellingham areas, with online classes and retreats starting in April, 2017. We also have customized versions of our programs available to health care organizations and professionals.
Tired of being unkind to yourself? Mindful Self-Compassion is an empirically supported training program that combines the skills of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and an orientation towards kindness. As self-compassion grows so does our well-being and our ability to sustainably help others.
