After deeply immersing himself in mindfulness practice as a Buddhist monk in Thailand, Sean noticed a shift in the way he related to himself and others. He felt called to use his experience to help others, and chose to shed his robes and return to the US.
At Spirit Rock Meditation Center, he worked alongside mindfulness pioneers such as Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg.
Sean has taught mindfulness and meditation for corporations including Tesla, Kaiser Permanente, Facebook, Ernst & Young, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and for health and government organizations, prisons, and hospitals around the world.
As a father and a husband, Sean understands how hard it can be to remain fully present in the seemingly ordinary moments of daily life. But also, he has experienced first-hand the power of mindfulness to transform those ordinary moments into experiences of total joy, gratitude and awe.
Sean has dedicated himself to teaching mindfulness in a way that’s simple, clear, and practical. Mindfulness Exercises teaches mindfulness not as conceptual, but as a practice that we can all apply in our day-to-day lives.
