Mike has been deepening his practice and understanding of mindfulness since he was first introduced to it at the age of 16. While at school, his interest in the mind motivated him to study Psychology as well as Philosophy. Afterwards, he spent a year in Nepal researching attention training in Tibetan monastic education. He then spent the next four and a half years in intensive solitary retreat. After finishing his retreat Mike began to teach mindfulness.
Mindfulness is an essential part of Mike’s life, and he believes that it’s a basic quality of mind that everyone has the capacity to cultivate. His own practice helps him to relate to his internal and external worlds with greater clarity and compassion. Over time, Mike has learned how to work with his thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
After starting his own family, Mike became interested in bringing the benefits of mindfulness to parents, children, and families. He currently lives in Barcelona with his wife and two sons where he spends his time teaching mindfulness, coaching, and working in the field of Tibetan translation.
