Jane Taylor has been committed to and practicing mindfulness since my journey started in December 2008, when I attended my first 10-day Vipassana silent mediation retreat (she completed 3 more 10-day silent retreats since then – December 2009, December 2011 & September 2013). In Term 4, 2009 she attended her first 8-Week MSBR Course. In August 2011, she attended the seven day Intensive MBSR and MBCT Teacher Training which involved 60 hours of training. Then in January 2012, attended the Teacher Development Intensive that was run by the Centre for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. This eight-day residential training program/retreat included: 92 hours of direct instruction and comprehensive investigation of the underpinnings of the MBSR curriculum.
Jane is a certified and registered ICF PCC coach, mentor, facilitator and registered teacher who is committed to helping support people change the way they see themselves by supporting them through “(Un)Learning, so You Can Reconnect, Realign and Reclaim Your Inner Resources and BE Whole-Heartedly YOU… One Habit at a Time!”, so we can live in peace and harmony.
Jane began her career as a professional athlete competing on the world tennis stage before finding her passion – learning (or unlearning may be more accurate) and building relationships. This passion evolved in to a career in education as well as facilitating national coaching programs for Tennis Australia and co-ordinating national initiatives for education, before starting Habits for Wellbeing. She is also works with the LCA as the Coaching Fundamentals Trainer.
Jane has supported and worked with over 31500 adults in leadership, coaching, education, emotional intelligence, mindfulness meditation, self-compassion, mental health promotion and prevention and organisational wellbeing.
Over the eight-week course, you learn a number of key skills that allow you to tune into and become aware of your experience in the present moment.
Firstly, you establish a routine of spending some time each day by yourself formally practicing mindfulness meditation. By choosing to engage in this practice you will learn how to cultivate deep states of relaxation and well-being. You will also learn how to bring a moment-to-moment awareness to your experience, and then apply this awareness so you can respond – rather than react in habitual ways – to everyday life situations. This becomes much easier to do when you are regularly practicing the formal meditation each day.
The course provides an opportunity for you to examine and reflect on the patterns of your own mind, feelings and actions, and to gently interrupt patterns of self-criticism and unhelpful actions.
We learn how to accept and embrace the full range of experience that life inevitably brings – pleasurable, joyful and expansive experience as well as painful conditions in their various forms – worry, anxiety, tension, impatience, anger, grief, sadness and even despair. Moving towards these conditions with an inquiring attitude, rather than trying to hold on to them, or to escape or avoid them, can bring some surprising and refreshing results.
