John’s background is in Software Engineering and more recently coaching managers and leaders. He first encountered mindfulness through the works of Jon Kabat-Zinn ten years ago. Since then he has received training in mind awareness in Sweden from Ratheesh Mani (http://ratheeshacharya.com/) and he is an student of Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka. He has also received yoga instruction from Czesław. John and Czesław hope that this workshop can combine John’s experience in the world of software with Czesław’s knowledge of yoga and mindfulness.
