I am a coach & trainer, specializing in the practice of applied mindfulness. I am the author of the book ‘Engaged Mindfulness – What mindfulness is and how we can apply it to our daily lives’. My passion is empowering people and organizations to greater levels of capability, effectiveness, creativity & wellbeing through the applied practice of mindfulness & meditation.
I have been coaching with a mindfulness focus for over twenty years. As the founder and principle facilitator at Integral Meditation Asia I deliver mindfulness programs & executive coaching to both the public & corporate sectors. I currently facilitate the mindfulness program for the MBA, staff & faculty at the INSEAD School of Business, Singapore campus. My clients include both government organizations in Singapore as well as numerous international SME’s & MNC’s. I am a committed mindfulness blogger, & the author and creator of over twenty practical workshops & courses on the subject.
My original training was as an artist and creative. I graduated from the Fine Art Department of the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. After University I spent ten years doing my basic training in meditation & mindfulness, specializing in the Tibetan Tradition which included five years as an ordained Buddhist monk.
My coaching, facilitating & teaching combines practical mindfulness and meditation techniques from three sources:
- The world’s great wisdom traditions
- Cutting edge practices that are currently emerging from contemporary psychology & neuropsychology
- My own ongoing practical & creative experience as a mindfulness practitioner, business owner & entrepreneur
As an coach, artist and entrepreneur my presentation of mindfulness reflects a strong interest in both:
- How it can be linked to work performance/engagement &
- Its potential to stimulate more deeply the innate capacity for creative intelligence found within both individuals and groups.
