    Mindful Community of Snohomish County invites:

    All Mukilteo and Everett School District Employees,
    ChildStrive staff, Wonderland staff, and Casino Road Community Center staff  
    to 
    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.

    Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) was developed by Christopher K. Germer, PhD, leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy (www.mindfulselfcompassion.org) and Kristin Neff, PhD, pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.self-compassion.org).

    MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing - being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity.

    Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we're hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

    MSC can be learned by anyone. It's the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves - especially when we're suffering - and cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and be free from suffering.

    Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that's required is a shift in the direction of our attention - recognizing that as a human being, you too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

    In MSC you will learn:

    • How to stop being so hard on yourself
    • How to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
    • How to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
    • How to transform difficult relations, both old and new
    • Mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
    • The theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
    • How to become your own best teacher

    A randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that MSC significantly increased self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction, as well as decreased depression, anxiety and stress. Improvements were linked to how much a person practiced mindfulness and self-compassion in their daily lives.

    Instructor: Carolyn McCarthy, Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher-in-Training by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion and concurrent participant in the Mindfulness Northwest Teacher Training Program.

      • Discussing strategies with peers for a more positive, mindful engagement in work and home situations that have been previously triggered stress response and unhelpful behaviors.
      • Identifying helpful vs. unhelpful thought patterns, problem solving, emotional regulation, and meaning-focused coping strategies.
      • Demonstrating meaningful change in personal mindfulness, perceived stress, and burnout as shown in standardized measures administered pre- and post-activity.

        A 3-week foray into mindfulness and compassion.


        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 Mindfulness Northwest class designed by our Executive Director Tim Burnett based on his 30 years of meditation experience and teaching hundreds of students mindfulness and compassion.

        Instructor: Oori Silberstein, Mindfulness Northwest Instructor  and Trained MSC Teacher qualified to teach MSC by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. 

        Cost: $115 - $60 Sliding Scale Tuition. We also have special Scholarship Tuition options available for those unable to pay at the low end of the sliding scale. Payment plans are also available during registration (four equal monthly payments; no financing fee).

        A silent day of continuous practice at beautiful Semiahmoo

        A silent day of continuous practice at the gorgeous Semiahmoo County Park Cannery Lodge north of Bellingham - a very beautiful and peaceful location for practice on the spit surrounding Drayton Harbor, across from Blaine. We'll practice together inside their historic Cannery Lodge, with options for walking meditation and lunch break time outside on the water.


        During this day-long retreat we will be guided in a sequence of meditation and mindfulness practices including: sitting meditation, the body scan, walking meditation (indoors and out!), gentle mindful yoga, and contemplative practices like the loving-kindness meditation.

        The retreat is designed especially for those who have taken Mindfulness Northwest classes. A day to gather, see old friends, and re-invigorate our practice together. Others with teacher-led meditation experience or a background in contemplative practice are invited to join as well. If you are totally new to meditation this day may be a challenge but you are welcome to inquire - for some "jumping in" is a great way to start.

        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. 

        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

        A 3-week foray into mindfulness and compassion.


        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 Mindfulness Northwest class designed by our Executive Director Tim Burnett based on his 30 years of meditation experience and teaching hundreds of students mindfulness and compassion.

        Instructor:
        Tim Burnett, Executive Director and Guiding Instructor at Mindfulness Northwest.

        Mindful Self-Compassion training offered in Bellingham.
        26 CE credits also available if you are a healthcare professional.


        Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) was developed by Christopher K. Germer, PhD, leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy (www.mindfulselfcompassion.org) and Kristin Neff, PhD, pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion (www.self-compassion.org).

        MSC combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion, providing a powerful tool for emotional resilience. Mindfulness is the first step in emotional healing - being able to turn toward and acknowledge our difficult thoughts and feelings (such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion) with a spirit of openness and curiosity.

        Self-compassion involves responding to these difficult thoughts and feelings with kindness, sympathy and understanding so that we soothe and comfort ourselves when we're hurting. Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression, and can even help maintain healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

        MSC can be learned by anyone. It's the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves - especially when we're suffering - and cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and be free from suffering.

        Most of us feel compassion when a close friend is struggling. What would it be like to receive the same caring attention whenever you needed it most? All that's required is a shift in the direction of our attention - recognizing that as a human being, you too, are a worthy recipient of compassion.

        In MSC you will learn:

        • How to stop being so hard on yourself
        • How to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
        • How to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
        • How to transform difficult relations, both old and new
        • Mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
        • The theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
        • How to become your own best teacher

        A randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that MSC significantly increased self-compassion, compassion for others, mindfulness, and life satisfaction, as well as decreased depression, anxiety and stress. Improvements were linked to how much a person practiced mindfulness and self-compassion in their daily lives.

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 Mindfulness Northwest class designed by our Executive Director Tim Burnett based on his 30 years of meditation experience and teaching hundreds of students mindfulness and compassion.

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.

        • How mindfulness and compassion help to reduce burnout and caregiving fatigue

        • New friends and comrades on "the path"
        • An understanding of how a meditation teacher and how meditation communities serve to support your growth

        Learn the healing art of mindfulness in this well-respected class.
        26 CE credits also available if you are a healthcare professional.


        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. 

        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.
