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 areas around Seattle, the East Side, Bellingham, Everett, and Tacoma. We also have online classes 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 participants for wellness activities.
Our mission is to provide top-quality mindfulness and compassion training to communities and organizations in the Pacific Northwest, while striving internally to be true to the mindfulness principles of cultivating truth, inclusion and compassion.
We do this by providing a broad array of classes, retreats and workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest, largely in the Puget Sound area.
In addition, we promote the wider spread of mindfulness and compassion by training teachers of these practices so that they can bring the benefits of mindfulness and compassion to their communities.
