I had the idea for First in the Queue some years ago when I was working in high-pressure environments within the private business sector. At its heart lies the premise that if we want things to change, we have to embody the change we wish to see. By doing this work, putting ourselves front and centre, in this context, it enables us to flourish and have better relationships with others.
I’ve had my own mindfulness practice for many years (a pre-requite for teaching mindfulness to others) and have studied Mindfulness-Based Approaches at Bangor University’s School of Psychology. In 2015 I became a certified .b teacher, teaching mindfulness to young people (11 – 18 years).
Sue is currently studying for a 3 year MSc, Studies in Mindfulness, with the University of Aberdeen. The unique focus of this course is a compassionate approach to mindfulness practice that is the basis for deepening insight, which then enriches one’s life and work.
I believe that mindfulness can be successfully introduced into every day life for the benefit of both individuals and organisations. I am able to draw on both my military and commercial experience to ensure mindfulness can be successfully aligned and embedded into life as it is, not as we would hope it to be.
