I practice mindfulness to enrich my own experience of life. In helping others to do the same I deepen my own understanding of mindfulness and strengthen my own practice.
Mindfulness is a transformative energy that helps to heal mind and body. The insights we gain from a mindfulness practice help us to align how we live with what is most important to us. Following a mindfulness practice helps to develop peace of mind, happiness, and a rewarding sense of fulfilment.
I’ve completed several mindfulness courses and I’m presently studying the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, a course affiliated with the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.
My experience of personal development is based on a life long interest, one in which I have encountered the same core principles again and again, albeit disguised in different formats and formulas.
My experience of team development is based on a diverse career which includes:
- 16 years as a project manager on major building & civil engineering projects.
- Starting, owning and managing a specialist recruitment business for 10 years.
- 4 years as an IT project manager managing software development teams.
Throughout my career I have experienced teams that perform well and teams that perform badly. My experience is that high performing teams depend on certain fundamental conditions to be present to unlock the potential of inter dependence.
I discovered mindfulness about 15 years ago and it has opened up a world of continuous discovery and learning. It encapsulates the great maxim of self development, “Know Thyself.”
