Lindsay Bridges, MD
Lindsay became interested in mindfulness through her work as a Family Medicine physician where the link between healthy stress management and physical well-being was so clear. She trained extensively for teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness, the original MBSR center founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and has completed their Teacher Certification for MBSR . She has been teaching MBSR in a variety of hospital and health professional training centers since 2002, and more recently, she has added work with youth and schools. She is a Mindful Schools Certified teacher. Mindfulness and meditation practices are an integral part of her daily life.

Basheerah became interested in mindful eating while working as a clinical dietitian nutritionist at Wake Forest Baptist Health Weight Management Center. After seeing patients lose weight only to quickly re-gain it back, she knew that mindfulness was the missing link to help change patient’s relationship with food. She then completed MB-EAT professional training through the Center for Mindful Eating and uses it individually and in group classes daily. Basheerah is a Registered Dietitian with licenses in North and South Carolina, and in addition to teaching with CCM, owns her own private practice, BE Nutrition LLC. She integrates mindfulness and meditation practices in all aspects of her life.
Jennifer first learned about mindfulness when she participated in a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction class in 2010. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, she became curious about how to share this with her clients – especially kids. This led her to become a Mindful Schools Certified Instructor, which allows her to share mindfulness with students, teachers, and school staff. Jennifer has felt the impact of mindfulness in her personal life, particularly as a parent. She incorporates mindfulness when working with individuals and families in therapy, and especially enjoys sharing mindfulness with parents, including offering a 6-week Mindful Moms class.

Years later, he rediscovered the depth and transformational power of this practice, and since then it has become a core element of his life. The personal benefits he has experienced from practicing mindfulness inspired him to engage in MBSR teacher training through the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Aaron is a Licensed Psychologist in North Carolina. He has facilitated mindfulness groups in corporate and community settings and has provided mindfulness-based psychotherapy to clients. Currently, in addition to teaching MBSR, Aaron works in the field of Leadership Development.
