Meet Penelope Mavor my latest ‘Meet the Meditators’ interviewee! Penelope is an International Leadership Coach and Consultant based in Rome. Penelope runs her own company, Quintessenza Consulting, and works in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. She has a particular interest in businesses and organisations committed to sustainability, and her area of expertise is mindfulness and how it helps people become more resourceful, flexible, creative and effective. A woman of many and varied talents, Penelope is also undertaking her own research into mindfulness and enjoys writing poetry. Penelope has very kindly agreed to share one of my favourites of her poems, a poem about meditation (scroll down below the interview to read it). I am absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to interview Penelope. I hope you enjoy her thoughtful and engaging responses as much as I did.
The lovely Dr Jacqueline Baulch is the second interviewee in my ‘Meet the Meditators’ series. Jacqueline is a Clinical Psychologist and owner of Inner Melbourne Clinical Psychology. I first met Jacqueline at a workshop last year and was immediately drawn to her warm and caring nature. When she introduced herself as a psychologist with an interest in mindfulness I wanted to know more! I’m excited to share Jacqueline’s thoughts on mindfulness and how she incorporates it into both her personal and professional lives. Jacqueline exudes enormous warmth and compassion and is clearly passionate about her work as a psychologist. I hope you enjoy her responses as much as I did. [Read more…]
I love reading interviews, especially interviews with people who are insightful, inspiring, caring and down to earth. So, with this in mind, I’ve decided to start a series of interviews called ‘Meet the Meditators’. Every second month I plan to interview an inspiring woman who meditates (every other month I hope to interview a woman whose passion for nature is expressed through her work, play or both!).
I am absolutely thrilled that Kate James of Total Balance, author of ‘Believe In Yourself and Do What You Love’, agreed to be my first interviewee! Kate’s areas of interest and expertise include helping people find meaning and direction in their lives, mindfulness and stress management. Kate also teaches meditation and runs the most wonderful meditation retreats. Kate is incredibly warm, open, thoughtful, inspiring and intelligent. I can honestly say if it weren’t for Kate I wouldn’t be doing what I love. I hope you enjoy her responses. [Read more…]
