“When we talk about resiliency or mindfulness, I am not talking about sitting on a mat meditating for 30 minutes everyday, although that’s one path to mindfulness. No, I am talking about being present in every moment and consciously choosing how you want to show up in the world. If we don’t acknowledge that we have the ability to be fully conscious and present and if we don’t exercise those mindfulness muscles at regular intervals in our day, the reptile brain takes over and we end up saying and doing things we may later regret. Ideally, we don’t want to react, we want to respond– strategically and authentically.

My coaching clients are looking for self-mastery around their emotions and stress reactions, and they want to be resilient through change, challenge, or conflict. They want to feel calm in the midst of a storm and think clearly and make decisions that are proactive as opposed to reactive. The energy shifts and mindfulness techniques we teach and practice allows them to do that intentionally, and at will.

The real gift of resiliency and mindfulness is our ability to turn the practice into the practical and integrate it into our every day lives. This way, whatever happens, we can handle it.”–Laura S. Scott

Program description:

Pause Power is a program designed to offer interested individuals, life and executive coaches, and wellness professionals the knowledge and training to model and share leading-edge mindfulness techniques, informed by the latest research in brain science and the physiology of stress.

These techniques can be utilized by the individual to maintain equanimity, and to maintain the ideal presence when working with clients. These tools and strategies can also be shared with clients (and loved ones!) to help them achieve equanimity, manage stress and anxiety, develop emotional intelligence, and facilitate better health and well being.

As a healthcare professional working in a multi-disciplinary team providing in-home services to patients and families, I believe mindfulness approaches and techniques facilitate the highest level of care from unified rehabilitation services and promote positive outcomes and goal achievement for both patients and caregivers.”–Debra, Florida Licensed Physical Therapist, and Pause Power participant.

I attended a Pause Power Workshop facilitated by Laura and her colleague, Mickie Brown. It was a fantastic seminar which provided me with so much insight into the power of our brains, our thoughts, and ultimately, our actions. Being present is soooo powerful! I left with immediate and impactful applications that I can apply to myself, my family, and my clients. I love the delivery style, energy, and the humor!   I highly recommend people taking this course – very well worth your time – you won’t be disappointed!”–Kelly, Consultant and Business Owner, Pause Power participant.

Laura is an amazing expert in Mindfulness. As a leader, I gained a lot of benefit from the Mindfulness Retreat she led in December 2014. It was an opportunity to disconnect and to assess how I wanted to respond to life and work events…and to learn tools to get the results I desire.”–Belinda, Business Owner, Pause Power participant.

The Deep Breathing, Relaxation and Mindfulness techniques that Mickie Brown has helped me to learn have had a very strong positive effect on my life. To know that, with a little effort, I can allow my body to go back to a state of peacefulness and healing and feel good about being alive again is a wonderful skill to have, and to build on.”–Joe, World Trade Centre Responder.

Mickie has taught us to break through barriers to re-learn happiness, to learn relaxation, which lessens pain and provides emotional security…the training in these techniques trains one’s mind to focus and train one’s mind to enter into a tranquil peaceful place.”–Paul S., World Trade Centre Responder.
