I have purposely set out to do two things in my teaching: teach mindfulness in a wide range of contexts, audiences, ages and abilities. The ability, agility and willingness to do this makes me (I hope) a better teacher. I also passionately believe that the benefits of mindfulness are for everyone and that we (as teachers) should actively encourage a 'trickle down' and a 'trickle up' effect to all levels of society. This practice is as useful to a team leader of a technology company as it is to a single, unemployed mother with small children. It's my intention to continue to teach in 'both directions'.
