Chris Adams

In practice since 1984, she graduated from the University of California Irvine School of Medicine and did her family practice residency at the University of Washington (UW).  A few years into practice, she did additional training in natural medicine at Bastyr University and she continues to be a devoted student and practitioner of natural and cross-cultural medicine, interactive guided imagery, mindfulness meditation, journeywork, flower essences, Tai Chi and Qi Gong. 

Chris helped co-create an integrative medical and healing center, One Sky Medicine, in Seattle. As adjunct faculty at the UW Medical School, she mentors students and residents and has lectured on natural medicine, women’s medicine, and the themes of collaboration, mindfulness, and integration of different disciplines in the healing process.  She currently teaches Mind Body Medicine to health sciences students and The Healer's Art to medical students at UW.

In her practice and as a facilitator at Harmony Hill, a retreat center for people living with cancer, she values being able to be present with those who choose to go more deeply into the meaning of their conditions and lives.  Working collaboratively with nature, spirit, clients, participants and practitioners, she believes inquiry, story, and relationship to be essential to the healing process.  Her work is dedicated to reawakening the strength and wisdom of the mind-heart-body connection in service to life, kindness and awareness.
