self-determination

Leaning into the Present Moment with Mindfulness

Leaning into the Present Moment with Mindfulness

Notes from Harvard Med School Conference

Most of us spend the vast majority of our lives between our ears, thinking, contemplating the future, ruminating about the past, going over our to-do-lists and “what if’s.” We postpone our dreams, putting them off, telling ourselves to wait until we have more information, resources and/or time. The truth is the more direction we are given in our lives, the more likely we are to resist. Self-determination is a key part of success and happiness.

Daniel Goleman, the Dalai Lama and You

Daniel Goleman, The New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence, recently addressed members of Harvard’s Institute of Coaching. As a member, I listened to his talk, “Coaching as a Force for Good,” based upon his latest book co-authored with the Dalai Lama, A Force for Good: The Dalai Lama’s Vision for Our World.
