    Our First Class in Arlington!

    The practice of mindfulness helps us find the calm center in the storm of life. And the practice of compassion helps us warm our hearts and meet the calm and the chaos with more kindness and curiosity. Our 8-week classes go into these two topics in depth. This 3-week class can help you get a feeling for this rewarding work and help you choose your path forward. With three sessions, a manual, support for practice between classes, and a warm classroom community you'll get started in "the practice" in a solid way.

    Expect to learn:

    • What mindfulness is and how systematic training in being more present and aware benefits our mental and physical health
    • How mindfulness helps us be more aware of perceptions - and misperceptions!
    • What meditation is, and what it isn't
    • How mindfulness of the body grounds you and increases wise responses to stress
    • How compassion works and what distinguishes it from empathy on the one hand, and pity on the other
    • How mindfulness and compassion help to reduce burnout and caregiving fatigue
    • The difference between formal and informal mindfulness & compassion practices

    Expect to leave with:

    • A 35 page manual and access to helpful practice recordings
    • Daily life tools for pausing and bringing kindness to even the most challenging situations
    • New friends and comrades on "the path"
    • An understanding of how a meditation teacher and how meditation communities serve to support your growth

    We hope you'll join us in this accessible new Mindfulness Northwest class designed by our Guiding Teacher and Executive Director, Tim Burnett, based on his 30 years of meditation experience and teaching hundreds of students mindfulness and compassion.

    Schedule:
    3 classroom sessions: Tuesday evenings 6 PM - 8:30 PM, October 30 - November 13.

    MBSR in Anacortes.
    Learn the healing art of mindfulness in this well-respected class.

    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.

    Course details:
    Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is a structured 8-week course on mindfulness that reduces stress, and promotes health and well being.  This highly participatory, practical course includes:

    • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
    • Gentle stretching and mindful yoga
    • Inquiry exercises to enhance awareness in everyday life
    • Group dialogue and small group exercises
    • Daily home assignments
    • Guided audio files for home practice
    • a 50-page workbook with short readings, a guide to the course, and resources to support your ongoing investigation of mindfulness

    Please see the MBSR page for full details about this well-researched class designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Medical Center.

    Schedule:
    8 classroom sessions: Saturday mornings, 10 AM - 12:30 PM, January 19 - March 16, 2019
