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 Mind Gardener® authors, Susan Pearse and Martina Sheehan have been spreading in both the business and personal development fields for decades.
The Brisbane-based authors are dedicated to making the science of the mind accessible to all. They explain how your brain shapes your life and what you can do to change it. They translate emerging neuroscience findings into simple knowledge that explains why we do what we do, and they reveal how to cultivate your mind and change your life with simple exercises that anyone can do, anytime and anywhere.
A chance meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2003 cemented their resolve to not only spread the message about the potential of the mind, but to also show people how to develop the skill of mindfulness, a skill they believe is essential for living well in the modern world.
Their passion lies in helping people cultivate their minds to improve performance, increase happiness levels, and live a life of purpose, fulfilment and success. And the hundreds of testimonials they have received indicate they excel at it.
For well over a decade Martina & Susan have introduced their mind gardening techniques into some of Australia’s largest and most high profile businesses via their consulting business reinvention®. In 2009 they succumbed to their clients’ pleas for tools to take home, and started creating the Mind Gardener® range, a series of step-by-step guides that making mind training easy. The first Mind Gardener® range includes The Living Happy Guide, The Clear Mind Guide, The Great Relationships Guide and The Bump to Baby Guide. In 2012 they had another burst of energy and added The Leadership Guide and the Mind Gardener mobile app. And let’s not forget their international publishing contract with Hay House, which, in October 2012, produced the popular book Wired for Life: Retrain Your Brain and Thrive. In 2013 they hit the road across Australia with their first public program, the Wired for Life Workshop.
Often seen in the media, articles on Mind Gardener® and by the authors have been published widely in national magazines. The authors 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.”
