The Mindful Coach


Ben Franklin had an interesting approach to dealing with politicians with whom he disagreed.  With mindfulness, he allowed them to save face before he challenged them. There’s a lot of wisdom in this which leads us to the topic of how to talk with people with whom you have big, huge differences. Should you even try? How do you engage? Why are people so threatened by differences of opinion? What about our own strongly held beliefs? Are they in the way of connecting and seeing clearly how to proceed? We’ll examine this and other topics in the podcast on “you are not your story.” You’ll find a beginning meditation blueprint available for free at
