My passion for my work has grown from my own meditation and compassion practice and how it has given me the means to work more effectively with all the challenges and difficulties of life. We might think that such techniques do not have a place in the cut and thrust of working life but my experience has been the opposite—that it is a surprisingly sane and practical response.
What makes me an expert?
I combine more than 25 years experience as a professional educator and senior manager in a non-profit organization where meditation and compassion were guiding principles. I learnt through experience how to integrate them into my working life and in 2004 I set up Awareness in Action in order to share what I had learnt. I have trained people in these techniques in Europe, the USA and Australia. In the UK, Awareness in Action was chosen to take part in the creation and delivery of an innovative leadership programme across a spectrum of Third Sector infrastructure organizations in Nottinghamshire and in 2011 we secured funding from the National Lottery to deliver training to a range of front line organizations in the social services.
