Center|Change: Change the How
Years ago, I founded a boutique international environmental consulting firm. It was just when environmental regulations started to "matter," so my clients (mostly high-tech multinationals like Apple, Motorola, Varian, etc.), needed to re-think, re-engineer, and re-shape their old ways. My clients enjoyed huge financial and marketplace gains from their willingness to grow their thinking.
Surprisingly, as a meditation and mindfulness teacher, I still do the same thing. Instead of thinking more broadly about a product, I now teach individuals (from middle-schoolers to murderers) and corporations (including plenty of lawyers) to improve job performance, how to de-stress, how to breathe.
Thoughts change. Brains change. Lives change.
The what doesn’t matter, it’s the how.
A bit more:
- Kelly has studied a few languages, including Spanish, French and Chinese, but silence has informed her more than any language possibly could.
- She's written two mindfulness books so far, Love Lessons from My Mom, and Already Here: the matter of Love. She's currently working on her third book about what she learned from teaching mindfulness in prison.
- She has a Master in Public Policy focused on international environmental policy from Harvard University, The Kennedy School.
- Her rescue dog, Hooch, is probably the best mindfulness master she's ever met (not to mention, handsome).
