Being MINDFUL is "focusing one's awareness on the present moment, especially as part of a therapeutic* or meditative technique."
Being WORLDLY is "of or concerned with material values or ordinary life rather than a spiritual existence."
A PATH is "a course of action or conduct."
A life COACH* is "a person who counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges."
~ According to Oxford Languages
According to Jen Erickson MA and her coaching clients:
People crave stability. We want to be secure in our personal and professional lives. So, we gather and guard connections, wealth, property, and accomplishments.
This is the stuff of a worldly path.
We also crave meaning beyond what we can possess, achieve, and measure. Much as we want to nail things and people down, to be safe and right and win, we also want to let go, to be generous and true, to get along well enough with others and know we belong in the world.
This is the stuff of a spiritual path.
Mindfulness practices that clarify the intersection of the worldly and spiritual paths at a personal level can lead to greater presence, understanding, and patience in all our roles and relationships.
To guide individuals and small groups in mindfulness practices that inspire awareness, identify obstacles, reduce conflict, inform decision-making, ground communication, and improve performance in personal and professional realms.
To mitigate mindless materialism and ambition. To encourage the awake, aware, alert, altruistic activities of individuals, and to promote the optimal functioning of systems, toward their joyful, beneficial impact in the world.
