At Roots in the Clouds we use a combination of Mindful Performance and Positive Psychology to help you connect to the greatest version of yourself.
Mindfulness is defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn as “the awareness that emerges through paying attention in a particular way; on purpose in the present moment, and non-judgmentally to the unfolding experience moment to moment.” Mindful performance is the quality of presence that emerges when one lets go of striving for an outcome and trusts the wisdom and talent available in the moment. By being fully present and “getting out of your own way,” you have a better chance of tapping into the capabilities you’ve refined through years of practice and training in your particular craft.
Positive Psychology is the study of optimal human functioning and unlike traditional psychology, which focuses on what is wrong with us, positive psychology focuses on what is right with us and builds on that – a mindset shift that has a profound impact on most people. Positive psychology promotes the concept of living life north of neutral and giving ourselves permission to be human.
Despite its name, positive psychology is not about being positive all the time. Rather, the field of positive psychology shows us that lasting happiness and well-being require an holistic approach to understand the interplay between our physical bodies and our mental well-being.
