Brandon R. Everett, RN, BSN, CMT. Brandon’s own experience of burnout and depression led him to the practice of mindfulness meditation. At the conclusion of attending an 8-week MBSR, amazed at the simplicity of the practice but the profundity of its effect he resolved to do whatever training was necessary to share the practice with others. In the fall of 2017 he completed a 2-year, 900-hour Meditation Teacher Training.
