Why might you seek out a mindfulness coach or mentor?
Perhaps you have:
- curiosity about mindfulness based on something you have heard or read and want to try it.
- tried mindfulness or other meditation techniques and felt it didn’t work for you OR, it sort of helped but, for whatever reason, you just didn’t stick with it.
- proclaimed yourself as someone who “just can’t meditate” yet are still willing to give it one more try.
- a life challenge that is pushing you to find new coping strategies
- an established mindfulness practice but wish to infuse it with new approaches to gain a renewed sense of wonder
- an established practice but believe it would be beneficial to engage in dialogue with a fellow practitioner about your practice experience and how it translates to your life experience
