I am delighted to announce that Carol Hyman will be assuming the position of Executive Director. Carol is currently serving as the secretary of AMT and has been an instructor since our inception. She has been teaching mindfulness in a variety of venues over the past year and is well positioned to help us connect to a broader audience. I will continue as President and work closely with her.
This spring Carol and I will embark on a cross-country tour promoting the activities of AMT. If you know of someone we might contact, please let us know.
As I look forward to my new role, I foresee regular blog posts by myself and others to help our readers – whether you’re just beginning your training or deepening it - make the most of your mindfulness practice. Having recently read articles offering advice on how to get along with people of opposing political views – especially when holidays dictate proximity to people we may love and butt heads with – I was inspired to write about how mindfulness can help us invite the better angels of our nature to call.
To you and yours from us at Applied Mindfulness Training, best wishes for a happy holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous 2017!
This work has triggered a profound transformation in my musical career. The training has helped me to see clearly the physical, mental, and emotional landscape of being a musician in my practicing, performing, and teaching. This allows me to make intelligent decisions on how to progress in a healthy and fulfilling way, and how to cultivate the same path with my students. Deep thanks and appreciation!
Patton Hyman’s meditation training seminars have sharpened the way that I practice law, reduced the stress associated with that practice, and improved outcomes. Moreover, the ability to stay grounded and clear regardless of circumstances has led to more ease and enjoyment beyond the office and in all areas of my life. Highly, highly recommended.
I attended a workshop at my organization that was very helpful in encouraging members of our organization to take a step back, breathe, and focus on our mission to create healthy and vital communities while helping us avoid getting caught in the hurly-burly stress of our fast-paced work environment. Their techniques helped me to refocus and create a more productive, meaningful pace for meeting my goals.
It doesn’t seem to matter, the setting or the size of the group. I have seen Patton Hyman guide people out of their distractions and into the present in groups of 5 to 40, and in several settings. He is a master trainer! He validates several approaches so the new learners can achieve mindfulness on their own following his training.
