We offer mindfulness instruction, mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) courses, and professional development in the Pacific Northwest.
Mindfulness is a 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.
One path to cultivate mindfulness is to take a class called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). 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. Mostly people experience an increase in well being. As a therapeutic practice it works well on its own and in conjunction with other therapies.
Mindfulness Northwest was founded in 2010 based on lead instructor Tim Burnett’s 25 years of meditation experience, ongoing training with the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical school, and his experiences working with veterans and medical school students.
Mindfulness Northwest offers heart-felt, caring and insightful instruction in mindfulness to patients, caretakers, health professionals and anyone with an interest.
