About Stephan Schoenig

Stephan started his career as an IT professional in 1996. In 2011, having been diagnosed with a chronic health condition that causes pain and disability, he started to learn mindfulness as a skill to enjoy the present moment more and welcome life changes, whether good or bad, with open arms.  Not only did mindfulness change his life for the better, it made his relationship to work more fulfilling.  Indeed, emerging research shows that mindfulness training in the workplace helps employees and companies become more resilient and competitive.

Excited by this prospect, Stephan started studying for a Masters in Mindfulness-Based Approaches at the University of Bangor in Wales, UK, to understand the science better and bring mindfulness to his workplace. Now, in addition to his day job, Stephan teaches mindfulness to a variety of populations. He finds great satisfaction as participants discover more helpful ways of living everyday events and increase their enjoyment of life both at home and at work.

Stephan would be happy to discuss with you how to embed mindfulness into your everyday life.  Email Stephan by clicking here.

Stephan meets the UK Good Practice Guidance for Mindfulness-Based Teachers and is listed on the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations site.
