What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is "Paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally, to the unfolding of experience moment by moment" - John Kabat-Zinn

Our world is changing every day - every hour. For many, we have been forced to slow down. Our stress and worry levels are up, anxiety is rising, and depression can easily fall upon us.

We have no way to plan our future right now.

Mindfulness can help you live with more peace and less anxiety.

Mindfulness can help you be in the moment and take in the beauty around you.

Mindfulness teaches you to better know yourself, your thoughts, your body, and your mode of living.

Mindfulness teaches you how to reduce stress, stabilize your emotions, and become more resilient during stressful times.

Meet Linette

Hi! My name is Linette and this is me and my family. I started Mindful Paths in 2016 and named my business what I did because I feel like each person has their own path when starting or continuing on the journey of mindfulness and self-compassion. Each person on the path will take its own form and in its own time.

It was after I took my first class in Mindfulness and Self-Compassion that I knew this was the life path for me. Not only has the practice transformed my life, it's created a space for me to give back to the world in a meaningful way.


Living a more Mindful and Self-Compassionate life has offered me new ways of living and I've seen the direct impact on those that I have taught and coached.  I look forward to all of the adventures and opportunities that come my way on this Mindful and Self-Compassionate journey with you. 

I am a Washington State Certified Teacher, Certified Mindfulness Instructor through Mindful Schools, and a Trained Mindful Self-Compassion instructor through UC San Diego School of Medicine and the Center For Mindful Self-Compassion. My greatest joy is to create and build communities with youth, young adults, and the general public through my Mindfulness and Self-Compassion programs. 


I'm also a newly published author of “Mindfulness for Teens Workbook” which offers teens new ways to cope with anxiety, stress, and self-criticism.


I have additional Training In:

  • Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness Professional

  • Non-Violent Communications/ Mindful Communications

  • Mindfulness in the Workplace

  • Stressed Teens / Mindful Based Stress Reduction

  • SEL For the Everyday Leader


“Linette is so passionate about helping others use mindfulness in their lives that the genuineness of her teaching pours out in her lessons naturally. Every time I get a lesson from her I learn something new. Her balance of her own mindfulness practice and caring for others is perfect to teach this type of work.”

- Coquille, School Counselor
