The Meaning of BIOM

BIOM provides a combination of experiences, and the name itself represents those experiences.

Relationships. One aspect of the name is based on the ecological idea of a “biome,” a place where life is experienced as a combination of interdependent relationships. At BIOM, we work to create an ecology of body, mind, and spirit that promotes and supports your health and well-being—including the “biome of relationships you’re part of: at work, at school, at home, and on your Way.

Oriental Medicine. We’re located on Bainbridge Island, WA, so “BIOM” also refers to “Bainbridge Island Oriental Medicine.”

Mindfulness. BIOM is also a “conscious place for health and well-being”; and a key aspect to being “conscious,” is to be “mindful.” Because the foundation of what we practice, facilitate, and teach at BIOM focuses on being mindful, BIOM also stands for the “Bainbridge Institute of Mindfulness.”
