Mindfulness has been a buzzword in leadership and organizational development ever since the mindfulness program at Google began receiving international attention five years ago. The practice of mindfulness, which will be introduced at the workshop, is about being present and aware in each moment of experience – easier said than done!

Google’s program, which is based in part on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program offered at many healthcare facilities, remains true to the principles of mindfulness as taught in the ancient practice of insight meditation. But in other programs there has been considerable misunderstanding of what mindfulness is and how it can be beneficial.

By examining areas of wisdom that guided both Carl Jung in his understanding of psychological type and today’s most experienced mindfulness teachers, this workshop will:

    Explore how participants can incorporate mindfulness in their own type development and in their work with clients. 

   Give type practitioners valuable insight into how much type development has already fostered their development of mindfulness.

David Hughey  

Dave has practiced mindfulness meditation since 1976 and has been a type practitioner since 2006. As a management consultant and leadership coach, he also draws on his thirty years of executive experience in newspaper and digital publishing.  His formal education was at Duke (B.S./psychology) and Kenan-Flagler UNC (MBA), and his certifications include MBTI Master Practitioner, EQ-i, FIRO-B, TKI Advanced Conflict Training, and Neuroscience of Personality Type. Among his most valuable learning experiences was the series of workshops on the mental functions and archetypes that was taught by Jungian analyst John Beebe between 2007 and 2013.

Dave received his insight (mindfulness) meditation training at many retreats from teachers including Rodney Smith, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Christopher Titmus and Leigh Brasington. His ongoing study of Buddhist psychology has included courses at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. He is a regular speaker at Triangle Insight in Durham, a mindfulness meditation community that meets weekly.
