Center for Mind, Body, Spirit and Nature

The Center for Spirituality, Science and Medicine (CSSM) was created in November 2009 to support Bastyr University’s commitment to multidisciplinary exploration of the deep questions at the heart of spiritual and scientific inquiry. In 2013, the name was changed to the Center for Mind, Body, Spirit and Nature (CMBSN). As an expression of Bastyr’s mission and vision, CMBSN co-sponsors events, courses and activities devoted to illuminating the interfaces, connections and congruence between spirituality, science, nature and medicine. CMBSN shares resources and develops collaborative relationships with organizations and individuals who work on the frontiers of this exploration. Its primary ambition is to contribute to the cultivation of wisdom and wholeness in the practice of medicine.
