Hello, my name is Kim Bundy-Fazioli, Ph.D., LCSW, the founder and owner of Mindfulness Matters Institute, LLC. I am excited to bring my passion for mindfulness to the mountains. Mindfulness practice has gained national and international attention due to the growing body of research documenting how mindful practices can help to improve ones health and wellbeing. The awareness of mindfulness is greatly attributed to Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts who developed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum initially for medical settings.
There are two universities in the United States that provide mindfulness certification (University of MA & University of California at San Diego). I am qualified to teach mindfulness through the UCSD, Center for Mindfulness, School of Medicine.
Prior to this new venture, I held an academic position as an associate professor at Colorado State University. I resigned this position in May 2014. I am fortunate to have received both teaching and research awards while in academe. Prior to working in a University, I held social work positions that provided services to children, adolescents, and families.
I would like to conclude with restating that the research on mindfulness education is showing that it helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and improve quality of life (especially, related to pain and illness), and improve mood, focus, and performance.
