The Art of Skilful Being™

Eastern wisdom practices for mental and emotional calm

 for professionals in a hectic world. 

Workshops  Retreats  Mentoring

It is time to embrace mindful and meditation practices.

Science confirms what the ancient Eastern wisdom traditions worked out a long time ago– that the way to long-term success in life, an organisation, a project, is through mindful awareness and skilful being.

The more aware and conscious we develop as a species, the more skilful and aware we need to be in work and life. How we operate, think, feel and do without understanding inner skilfulness determines how much we suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness.

You and your team may benefit with what we have and can offer — peace of mind.

No More Stress & Burnout!

What is Skilful Being™?

At Mindful Success what makes us unique is we teach the Art of Skilful Being™.

We teach what is needed for mastery of your mind, emotional resilience, ability to relate and problem solve in all situations with freedom from stress, anxiety and depression.

We also know there is more than just mindfulness, we bring in other important aspects of wisdom teachings and meditation to provide so much more with a greater chance of everyone finding something they can enjoy doing that suits their unique personality.

In a nutshell, we make your people happy. Happy people function and work better. Mindful and meditation practices give simple, efficient, doable strategies to overcome the stresses of work and life.

The Art of Skilful Being™ draws upon practical methods and techniques from different eastern wisdom traditions: Mindfulness, Zen, Vedic Transcendental meditation and self-inquiry.  We merge it all into 'Clear Space Technique™'. 

That’s why we say mindful and not mindfulness.

We understand the importance of developing a high EQ through working with the mind, the heart and our essential nature, our being. Your being is the core of you, without the labels, concepts, beliefs — the best of you.
