The more you nurture a feeling of loving kindness, the happier and calmer you will be. — Dalai Lama
Karen Gifford and Jeena Cho both came to meditation as practicing attorneys. We have firsthand knowledge of the difficulties and rewards of legal practice, what the daily life of a lawyer is like, and the common challenges lawyers face in dealing with clients, colleagues, opposing counsel and the court system.
We have experienced how meditation and mindfulness practices can support a more effective and enjoyable legal practice, and make the stresses of a demanding professional life more manageable.
We have also experienced unexpected rewards of meditation that go far beyond stress management and increased concentration: deeper self-knowledge, more rewarding interpersonal relationships, and a heightened sense of connectedness with others and the world.
