Mindfulness training is a lot like going to the gym, where we work out to build greater strength, endurance, and flexibility. This increases our total physical fitness level and makes life in general healthier and more enjoyable. We can also apply these qualities to specific endeavors like martial arts, sports, and injury rehabilitation.
Mindfulness practice also develops three main skills - concentration, clarity, and equanimity - which enhance every area of our lives. These abilities foster less suffering in negative experiences and greater fulfillment in positive ones, which promotes mental fitness and overall well-being.
These skills can also be used to pursue a huge range of explicit, individual goals. People use mindfulness training to sharpen focus, relive stress, and develop better emotional regulation. Some use it to work with issues like trauma, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. And many people are engaged in comprehensive self-exploration that transforms them at every level and leads to personal liberation and happiness independent of circumstances. Mindfulness practice is a spectrum that encompasses all of these, and more.
It has five main benefits:
Relief - minimizing suffering
Satisfaction - maximizing fulfillment and happiness
Wisdom - understanding yourself at every level
Mastery - acting in skillful and helpful ways
Service - helping others from a place of love
I coach individual clients, both face-to-face and online. In the initial consultation, we'll assess your particular needs and goals to see if we'd be a good fit to work together. If we decide to continue, I'll design a specific plan based on your objectives. After that, we'll meet frequently in order to tweak and fine-tune the approach to make sure it's meeting your needs, even if they change.
I also work with groups. Whether it's a school, business, clinic, hospital, recovery center, or anything else, I'm thrilled to bring mindfulness training to crowds from two to two hundred.
Please reach out with to me with any questions or to schedule a free consultation.
I'm available for presentations and speaking engagements. Many groups and organizations would like to know more about mindfulness, and I consider that an essential part of my job. Whether you're interested in an employee mindfulness program, curious about its benefits, or simply looking to gain a better understanding of the principles and methods, I can help.
