Entrepreneur & Mindful Therapist

Dr. William Jackson
Founder

While meditating as a monk in remote jungle huts for 12 to 14 hours a day, William developed a fascination with how people living fully engaged modern lives could experience the life-changing benefits of meditation. This calling led him to leave the monastery, study psychology, and develop the SkillfulMeans approach to complete wellbeing.

“As you become older you develop a different perspective on life. You begin to cherish all the things that you previously took for granted.”

Interating Mindfulness into your relationships

Often people think about mindfulness as they do about exercise. It is something that you do in the morning to keep you in shape then go about your day.

However, the real gem with mindfulness and meditation is the change in perspective, insight and increase in effective desicion making at work and at home.

Here’s how I realized this for myself:

“I was meditating there in my hut, during a period of deep concentration when I had a flash of profound insight. I could see how my meditation practice had utterly transformed who I was. I could see so clearly how each thought and action creates the people we become and the ebviornment relationships that surround us.

At that moment it felt like I was touching the very source of well-being which was ultimately, choice, while being connectied to my most personal values. I felt as though I had discovered what I have always been looking for; a sense of satisfaction and alignment we are all looking for. I thought about all those in my life who I cared about, all those who would never leave their busy lives to become monks. I knew I needed to find a way to share this insight with them.”

In the years that followed, William created the SkillfulMeans approach to wellbeing combining traditional meditation training with modern science-backed approaches to mental, emotional, and physical health.
