    Our first MBSR class in Everett!

    Are you interested in mindfulness and its potential for enhancing health and well-being? Are you under stress? Are you struggling with chronic conditions such as chronic pain, depression, and anxiety? Are you feeling as if life is too much? Or do you simply want to live a fuller life with greater balance?

    Recent research shows Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) reduces chronic pain and boosts the immune system; addresses painful mental states like depression and anxiety; minimizes emotional reactivity and promotes well-being; increases flexible attention and sharpens mental focus; and actually thickens grey matter in the areas of empathy and problem-solving. Happiness is a delightful by-product.

    For Healthcare Providers: a class teaching the fundamentals of mindfulness and MBSR. Hosted by The Everett Clinic.


    Join us, along with other healthcare providers and their family members, in an investigation of mindfulness from the inside out. Mindfulness for Healthcare Providers is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is the best researched mindfulness intervention with positive research indications for:

    • Improving immune system function
    • Reducing anxiety
    • Preventing relapse of depression
    • Reducing negative emotional response to stress
    • Managing chronic pain
    • Addressing chronic health conditions including high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, heart disease, asthma, GI distress, and skin disorders
    • Effectively coping with short and long-term stressful situations
    • Encouraging growth in the brain areas associated with learning, memory, focus, attention, emotional regulation, and empathy
    • Enhancing compassion and altruism
    • Reducing pregnancy-related anxiety
    • Helping professionals cope with stress, connect with patients, and reduce burnout-inducing negative emotions and anxiety
    • Coping with PTSD (veterans and other sufferers)
    • Increasing “mindfulness of eating” (e.g., in relationship to obesity)
    • Improving general health and well-being through a focus on prevention and greater awareness of what's truly harmful and helpful
    This Mindfulness for Healthcare Providers class was inspired by MBSR and offers a deep taste of mindfulness training in a shorter 4-week period.

    Eligibility:
    This course is open to all Everett-area healthcare providers and therapists (MD/DO/PA/NP/RN/LMHC/MHC/MSW, etc.) and their spouse or partner.
