1 pointHi, My name is Leanne and I have been studying under Sean to be a mindfulness meditation teacher, though I got off track due to a busy work life. Having a busy work life and feeling overloaded has made me realize exactly why meditation is so important. I have been trying to figure out how I really want to apply being a teacher and more and more I am thinking I would really like to bring mindfulness into the workplace. I know when I am being more mindful, I talk to people differently and I hope to help others do the same.
1 pointI am excited to virtually meet you all! I am currently a full time student finishing up my doctoral study in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in behavioral health. I have been an educator for 12 years form 1st to 5th grades. Through divine intervention I as a single mom of a 6 year old, an 11 year old and a 22year old, as well as a “glama” of a 6 month old have been able to be at home to finish school and homeschool my 11 year old son. Growing up in a Buddhist and Catholic family mindful practice was in hind site always around me. It was not until my son at the time he was 7 was diagnosed with autism that I became aware of the invaluable practice of mindfulness, and began incorporation it in our home, the schools I taught and decided to go back to school to emerge myself in behavioral health and the effects of mindfulness. I am so excited to learn and grow with you all! Many blessings to each of you!
1 pointThank you for your beautiful post! I struggle with this a great deal. I at this time only have my mother with me on earth. I have recently lost my grandmother, whom I always related more to as a motherly figure in my life. The way you stated you see them now through the lense of their own life experiences was really freeing to me. I think the reason my mother and I have a limited relationship is a fostering of expectations that were never met. When I think of her through the lense of the life she has experienced I am able to have much greater empathy for her.
