Friday, September 18th, 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Saturday, September 19th, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm with a break for lunch

Join Mindfulness and Dharma teacher Tim Burnett of Mindfulness Northwest and Red Cedar Zen in an exploration of the modern mindfulness movement from the inside out.

Tim will offer a mix of workshop activities and retreat practices as we explore the depth and power of mindfulness as well as its roots in Buddhism. Along the way we’ll weave in a taste of the scientific validation and underpinnings of these practices and feel our way into the felt sense of the practice with the support of poetry and story.

Please contact Stephanie Basford, stephanie.basford@nalandawest.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Tim Burnett

Mindfulness Northwest was founded by Executive Director Tim Burnett in 2011 as a way to offer the benefits of mindfulness meditation and practices to the greater Pacific Northwest and is now offering courses and staff trainings at sites from Seattle to Bellingham. Tim has been teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) since 2010, and practicing meditation since 1986. He is certified to teach MBSR by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School; certified to teach Mindful Self-Compassion by the Center for Mindful Self Compassion; and certified to teach Compassion Cultivation Training by the Center for the Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University.

Tim brings a background in traditional Dharma practice to his mindfulness work. He was ordained as a Soto Zen priest in 2000 and over the course of a 20 year apprenticeship with the well-known Zen teacher Zoketsu Norman Fischer, Tim received permission to teach Zen independently in 2011 and is the Guiding Teacher of Red Cedar Zen Community in Bellingham. Tim also has a varied professional background including work as an educator, carpenter, software developer and scientist. Mindfulness takes the essence of a core Buddhist practice and makes it accessible and non-religious: a powerful coming together of modern psychological and medical understanding with ancient wisdom practices. Tim is happy to have a strong background in both sides of this new (and old) way of healing and growth. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and other mindfulness based therapies take their inspiration from the Buddhist Satipatthana Sutta which Tim has studied many times.
