"I always find myself relaxing and feeling inspired within the first few minutes of arriving for a session with Zangmo. She radiates warmth and joyfulness, with the stillness and vitality of someone who has clearly spent many years meditating.

What is Mindful Creativity Coaching?
Life Coaching and Mindful Creativity Coaching are conversations between the coach and client in a safe, informal, confidential atmosphere. As your coach or mentor I aim to support you in moving on with any issue in your personal, professional, creative and spiritual life.
This can be a simple direct process, or a more complex process helping you become more aware of negative thoughts and self limiting beliefs and discovering ways of turning these around to free your potential.
Depending on your interests, I offer a range of methods from my training and background in life coaching, mindfulness, meditation, art practice, therapeutic art, mental health and teaching to help you on your coaching journey.
Mindfulness involves being aware of and paying attention to what is happening, as it is happening.
This includes awareness of seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting, thinking, feeling, and bodily energy as we experience them.
Mindfulness can be used in a secular way just to relax and improve health and well being, or it can also be part of a path of waking up to who we really are at the deepest level. Contrary to popular belief you do not have to be able to stop thinking in order to learn to do mindfulness meditation! We just need to be aware of whatever our experience is as it is happening.
By becoming more aware of ourselves, we begin to notice knee-jerk reactions to situations and challenges which cause us unnecessary suffering. With practice, our minds can begin to relax and become open to choosing new, more beneficial ways of responding.
With more practice we begin to appreciate ourselves and the world around us with more awareness, clarity, wisdom, love, joy and compassion. We make friends with ourselves and our experience.
The Origins of Mindfulness
While Mindfulness can be learned in a non religious way, it can be useful to understand the background to mindfulness. Mindfulness meditation is an awareness practice originating 2500 years ago in Buddhist meditation practices and other spiritual traditions worldwide. For Buddhists, meditation and mindfulness is a spiritual practice which can lead to enlightenment, or the full realisation of who we are in our essence.
The Benefits of Mindfulness
For centuries meditators, doctors and healers in eastern traditions have found that mindfulness and meditation improve health and well-being. Recent scientific research has documented how regular meditation and mindfulness helps many health problems, including heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, insomnia, chronic pain, cancer, immune problems, stress and depression. The NHS has now taken Mindfulness on board.
Mindful Life Coaching and Mindful Creativity Coaching
Mindful Life Coaching and Mindful Creativity Coaching aim to help you become more aware so that you are better placed to make choices that really help you integrate who you are with what you do. As an awareness tool, Mindfulness is an ideal partner to Life Coaching and Creativity Coaching in helping you to understand yourself better and enjoying life more.
Mindfulness learned from an experienced teacher or coach can really complement and deepen your coaching experience. As there are a lot of misunderstandings about what mindfulness and meditation really are, it is important to learn mindfulness or meditation from someone who is experienced with an established long term training and practice.
