What is your personal relationship to or connection with mindfulness?
I have been practicing mindfulness since 1975. I began with basic instructions from books I read by Trungpa, then took 2 10-day courses through Goenka, and have done several retreats since then.
What is your professional work? As this is a mindfulness-based professional's network we require each member to disclose his or her profession (i.e. teacher, psychotherapist, MD, lawyer, etc.)
I am an Integral Master Coach. I have my own practice as well as obtaining clients through a company called The Leadership Group.
Using mindfulness-based techniques in professional work
I apply mindfulness in two ways in my coaching work with executives and managers. Firstly, my practice is very presence-based, which means I bring full attention to every client in every session. Secondly, I encourage clients to take up the practice and I teach them various techniques. In 2013, I co-developed a mindfulness course called "Mindfulness Tools for Busy Professionals".
