The Mind Gardener Story
Everything you think, learn, see and do shapes your brain and changes your life. You are a mind gardener.
This is a message that has transformed the lives of people around the world and one that Hay House authors, Susan Pearse and Martina Sheehan have been spreading in both the business and personal development fields for decades.
Martina & Susan are driven by a strong purpose: waking up the world. They are passionate about reviving the dying art of paying attention, and believe that the precious but fragile gift of attention is the most threatened resource on the planet today. The distraction of technology is only the tip of the iceberg. In the absence of this technology, many of us are only too accomplished at allowing our attention to be captured by worries, what-ifs and wasted thoughts.
Martina & Susan provide a simple path back to clarity. Their practical approach has won dedicated followers, many of whom have tried other techniques without sustained results. While paying attention is a fundamental human capability, it is rarely well understood or well managed. Martina & Susan reveal fascinating facts about the brain, and make the challenge of reviving the dying art of paying attention an exciting and positive journey.
They have had their own interesting twists and turns on the path of life. A shopping trip to New York in 2003 lead to a chance meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, then a shopping trip in Melbourne in 2011 lead to a publishing contract when they hadn’t even considered writing a book. They have held senior management roles in organisations of 20,000 employees through to 5 employees, and are successful entrepreneurs in their own right. Their pedigree and extensive experience in transforming businesses is proven across private and public sectors, large and small companies, and in various industries.
Their portfolio of services and products includes the award-winning Conscious Leadership Program, the self-directed Mind Gardener® Guides, a mobile app, online programs, and the book Wired for Life. But every couple of years they have a burst of energy and produce something new and unexpected. So keep your eyes open for their next book, due out in late 2014.
Martina & Susan are sought-after business advisors and consultants, continuing their corporate work. They are also often seen in the media, with articles published widely in national magazines. They have appeared on national television and radio programs, and are sought after guest speakers who have inspired audiences all over the country with their entertaining style and thought provoking ideas.
“When I was introduced to mindfulness and mind gardening I was given a gift for life that helps me manage stress better, stimulates my creativity and heightens my joy in everyday moments.”
