One of the reasons I became a mindfulness teacher was the experience I had on my first mindfulness course, about 10 years ago. I’d known a little about mindfulness, having read some Eckhart Tolle and Thich Nhat Hanh and I wanted to explore and experience so much more.
During the course, I ran the gamit of emotions! It was challenging, inspiring, frustrating and heart-opening…and yes, it did help me manage stress a little better and to really understand the workings of my mind and my habitual patterns!
As soon as I finished, I knew that I wanted to teach this work as I continued to live more mindfully, and so began my journey as a mindfulness teacher and facilitator. It’s been an interesting road so far and long may it continue!
