I was asked to tell my story because it is unusual.
The global Association of Change Management Professionals’ (ACMP) Vancouver chapter was curious about how a cancer diagnosis led to creating mindfulness meditation in the workplace. This happened in 2011 which was a time that was pretty bold to do so. Then, this turned into unveiling and documenting the business benefits of this unique combination.

- Here is the white paper that won an award “Meditation – a Powerful Change Management Tool’, and caught the attention of many, including the Greater Good Science Center of UC Berkeley, where I spoke at their Mindfulness and Well-Being conference in late 2015. A chain reaction of events has most recently culminated in my working with Google to help train their mindfulness facilitators.
With much gratitude, it has become an honour to help people discover the important life practices of mindfulness and meditation.
