Practicing Mindfulness provides greater mental and emotional resources, reduces stress and can lead to greater job satisfaction. Mindfulness provides a platform from which you can improve the other skills and mindsets you need.
Participants in workplace Mindfulness programmes report that Mindfulness is helpful in managing stress, improving creativity, enhancing focus and concentration, and building energy.
Practicing Mindfulness will give you and the people you work with the ability to perform at a higher level and with less stress and other negative consequences. It will also improve the culture and responsiveness of your workplace, making it a better place to work.
Most workplace training is focused on developing skills and abilities for patrticular tasks. Mindfulness training is learning to improve your ability in all aspects of your work as well as your general approach to work and to life. Normal training can be like loading new software. Mindfulness training is like upgrading your operating system so everything works better.
Programmes are delivered primarily in the workplace. Workshops are at both the workplace and external venues. The Now Project is about integrating Mindfulness into day to day life and our training venues reflect that.
Everything we experience - every success, failure, moment of happiness or misery - comes as a result of our mind and how we use it.
Many years ago, while a lawyer, I began to explore what was needed to control and shape my mind and my inner life. This led me to combining my rational, intellectual world with the world of contemplation and intuition so that I could use my mind in a way that best served my material, emotional and other needs.
I offer training that includes, among other things, Mindfulness and related Emotional Intelligence techniques to assist others who wish to find out how they can enhance their own inner life and take greater control over the workings of their mind so that they live happier, more productive and fulfilling lives.
Our mind is constantly changing and being updated. Whether we are in control of those changes is up to us
Everything we think, feel, say or do goes through our mind first
Happiness, Success and Resilience all depend on skills that can be learned

Private sessions have the benefit of being more intensive and designed to meet your specific needs. This, in turn, helps you to make more progress faster and to integrate an effective Mindfulness practice into your life in a way that works for you.
Individual sessions can take place either in your workplace or at an outside venue. There are no special requirements and an ordinary meeting room or office will usually suffice.

Mindfulness revolutionises lives in multiple ways.
I believe that the practice of Mindfulness can make a positive difference in so many aspects of our society. To facilitate this I offer Mindfulness programmes and courses in my local community and to organisations that work in other communities to make change. These programmes and courses are offered on a voluntary or koha basis.
Please get in touch if you or your organisation would like to discuss how we might work together to integrate Mindfulness into what you do.
My professional life has traversed the spectrum of how our minds can work, from the highly rational to the completely intuitive.
For 30 years I was a lawyer practicing in New Zealand, Australia and the U.K.
I have always been interested in how our minds work and the capacity we have to change and improve ourselves. Following this fascination 20 years ago I began training in meditation, Mindfulness and other contemplative practices.
The Now Project draws on my training and life experiences as well as my work in the commercial world. I believe that we can all prosper through our work, not just financially but also emotionally and mentally, with the result that we live happier and more fulfilled lives.
Meditation not only reduces stress, it changes your brain
