Hi! I'm Shahin
Mindfulness Coach and Educator
I'm a mom of two teenage daughters. We've all been through trying and challenging times. As soon as I started going through an overwhelming phase of my life, I knew that I was ill-prepared to be able to manage my sanity and hence, my children's well-being. So, I re-energized, re-focused, and re-discovered what I knew to be true - that the hurried way in which I was living was not sustainable. As I reflected, I learned that I needed to calm the chatter in my mind, and heal my soul. I began a deep and meaningful journey into Mindfulness, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Yoga, Reiki and Chicken Soup for the Soul (J. Canfield) Success Training. Through my journey, evolved my Company: Mindful Changes. I am a Mindfulness Coach, Speaker and Educator, based in West Vancouver, BC. I coach parents and kids in a one-one sessions; as well as teach and conduct workshops at Community Centres, Schools across Lower Mainland communities and Canada.
In my previous career, I was an Occupational Hygienist, training and educating employees in Occupational Health and Safety - How chemical and physical stresses in the workplace can affect our well being. Now, my work revolves around supporting parents & children, teachers and other employees working in corporations big and small, in accessing and incorporating Mindfulness strategies in our daily lives as a pathway to create and craft a life of inner peace, love, compassion and self-acceptance.
I believe that the daily practice of Mindfulness can bring about a clarity that allows us to savour the moment and live a meaningful and passionate life.
Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation and healing.
