True Mindfulness in Law Practice
Perhaps no other profession in contemporary American society serves to further disconnect its practitioners from a grounded sense of being than does the practice of law. Though most attorneys gravitate towards the legal profession out of a genuine interest in being helpful and of benefit to others, the cerebral nature of legal training and practice, over time, often serves to ensnare attorneys in analytical thought creating a painful separation from present-moment experience.
It is this excessive, often compulsive thought, analysis, and judgement that commonly leaves attorneys fractured and disconnected from a felt sense of being in the present moment; it is only within the present moment that one may find inner peace and sustainable health and happiness.
The MINDFULAW Mindfulness for Lawyers program helps to counteract years of conditioning that may have led not only to career dissatisfaction, but recurring difficulties in other areas of your life.
