Curious about meditation? Please join us for a FREE interactive and informative evening to learn what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is all about.


Date: Tuesday, April 9th, 2019
Time 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 
Instructor: Eliza Carlson, LMHC, CN

Description: We'll watch a 1993 Bill Moyer's special featuring Jon Kabat-Zinn about the 1979 development of the now international phenomenon known as MBSR. You'll then participate in a mindfulness exercise, and be able to ask questions about what meditation is (and isn’t). This workshop serves as an orientation to the popular eight-week MBSRM class which runs on Tuesdays,
January 22nd- March 12th from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. This free introductory session is strongly recommended for those who plan to attend the eight-week course.

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Define mindfulness meditation.
  • Demonstrate mindfully eating a bite of food.
  • Describe the history of development of the MBSR program.
  • Describe what to expect from the eight-week class.

Location: Bastyr Center for Natural Health, room #166. 3670 Stone Way N, Seattle. Parking in the Bastyr clinic basement parking is reserved for Clinic patients only. You may park on the street or in the lot on the corner of 38th and Woodland Park Ave N if you arrive after 5:30 p.m.

Eliza Carlson, LMHC, CN

  Eliza Carlson is a master’s level licensed mental health counselor and certified nutritionist. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Bastyr University where she later spent four years as adjunct faculty. She completed the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Professional Training Program with Bob Stahl, PhD who collaborated with Jon Kabat-Zinn to develop the widely researched MBSR program that is being offered in medical and private institutions of health all over the world.

Eliza practices the recommendations she gives to others in her own life and has undergone intensive study of Vipassana meditation. In addition to a daily meditation practice, she has completed over four months of silent meditation retreats in Washington, California, Massachusetts, Burma, and Thailand.  As a counselor, she commonly helps her clients through anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma recovery, relationship struggles, grief and loss, self-inquiry, and personal evolution.

In Eliza’s words “With all of my heart I believe we are in this thing together. The work that we each do to understand ourselves more; to learn to love and honor ourselves, each other and the earth more; and to develop compassion for all beings is the most selfless and respectable goal to undertake. Thank you for the work you are doing. Keep it up, and I will keep up mine.” For more information about this instructor go to:
