The Quiet Transformative Power of Mindfulness Coaching By Julia von Flotow

Mindfulness, according to Jon Kabat Zinn, who popularized Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction in North America, is “knowing what you are doing when you are doing it,” a state of active awareness. Reflection before, during and after action, is a mindfulness practice that helps the practitioner develop self-awareness, making it a valuable resource for coaching. The Mindfulness Cycle provides us with a framework that gives coaches and their coaching clients feedback on multiple levels of being, enabling insight and creating awareness that leads to direct knowledge and facilitates the development of informed intention.

Julia explains in her article how this works and one of her clients shares her experience on video in the April issue.
