The Mindfulness Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit wellness center founded in 2009, by Dr. Deborah Norris, Ph.D. and her two daughters, Jessie and Jacqueline. In 1996, Debbie was diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia, which left her in chronic pain; doctors said there was no cure and nothing could be done. Debbie, a research scientist, began researching the underlying causes of her condition and took up practices to reverse these causes. Debbie began doing things to gradually increase her physical, mental and emotional well-being, including gentle yoga for the physical pain, nutritional changes to increase her energy and meditation to relieve stress. By incorporating these practices, Debbie reversed her condition and returned to an active, healthy life. After an accident in 1999, Debbie suffered a traumatic brain injury and was diagnosed with seizures, impaired vision and chronic headaches. Once again, Debbie researched ways to heal herself using mind and body practices, and once again, Debbie was able to heal herself and live a healthy life free of seizures and pain. This personal health journey is what led Debbie and her family to open The Mindfulness Center: to continue to explore mind-body practices through research, practice and teachings, and spread this information to others, so that all may enjoy health, happiness and optimal well-being. Together with a team of health experts and educators, they seek to create a model of the new paradigm for health car
