Good Morning fellow mindful teammates
I'm really excited about this programme. I have learned a lot about my mind in recent years, from a very low knowledge base to be sure! I am looking forward to having a mindful morning every day for the next 6 weeks.
Where are you?
I live in Vancouver Canada. I moved here from HK almost 5 years ago (hello fellow HKers!). Originally from London, UK and never thought I would become a world traveller, but work has given me wonderful opportunities to travel and I think we are in Vancouver for the foreseeable future - lucky us!
How do you spend your time?
I have a 21 month old son, and another baby on the way and so if I am not at work, much of my time is taken up with my son, which is unbeatable (most of the time!). For work, i travel fairly extensively in N America, and for personal travel we ususally find ourselves routing back to Europe to see family.
Why Kenzai Mind?
I have had somewhat of a mindful enlightenment over the last, 5 years. When I first moved to Vancouver, i landed off the plane and in the taxi on the way to my hotel, i had a panic attack - ended up in hospital and went on a journey to learn how it happened. It turned out to be stress related (moving job, country etc...) and i sought some help to get to the bottom of it. Many of the tools i learned were around mindfulness, being present and accepting of the thought chains. But, it is hard to find the time to work on mindfulness and I thought this course looked like a good booster!
How do you get here? Who introduced you to Kenzai?
I was introduced to Kenzai when i was in HK several years ago. I needed a re-set and Kenzai was awesome. I then did Kenzai 2 at the beginning of this year and have been trying to keep up with it since. I have done Beach Ready and now Kenzai Mind.
Are you facing obstacles to this training cycle? This might be injury, travel, or even some cosmic dissonance of some nature. If so, let the team know or contact me 1 to 1.
For me, it is always going to be the travel, social engagements and temptation. I will be travelling extensively in the next 6 weeks with work and for holiday, and i know that i have weak willpower in social situations not to have a beer or a glass of wine. Those are my weaknesses which i need to be aware of!
Looking forward to the journey with you all!
