Encore Episode: The Mindful Coach
What is mindfulness, what is it not and why should it matter to Christian coaches?
What does the Bible and church history say about mindfulness? What are the components of the practice of Holy Noticing? Those are just a few of the questions we’ll ponder and answer in today’s podcast.
Tune in for radical insight on how to:
- Uncover a unique perspective on the space between moments in life: Holy Noticing.
- Discover a lost spiritual art that requires a state of Christian mindfulness so you can notice things with a holy purpose.
- Learn the art of Holy Noticing—being a person who ponders and yields; reviews and renews relationships; engages the environment; labels and releases emotions; observes and submits thoughts; searches and surrenders; engages the world like Christ.
