Meet Jyothi Shyamsunder
In all East Asian Languages including Tibetan the word for Mind is the same as the word for Heart!
This is what excites her the most!
Jyothi Shyamsunder has been a Mindfulness and Compassionate Living practitioner for close to six years now. She has done extensive research, study and teaching in Mindfulness and Neuroscience of Mindfulness. She currently renders mindfulness and compassionate interventions for schools, parents, corporations, NGOs, sports. She co-facilitates retreats and is a part of projects involving Buddhist teachers and scholars. She is a part of the International Mindfulness Advisory Group (MAG) at the company Zoojoo.BE. She was also chosen as a speaker at India’s First Mindfulness summit held at the India International Center (IIC), Delhi in September 2016.
Having experienced a steady growth in Compassion towards herself and others through the practice of mindfulness her interest grew in the Science of Compassion. This lead her into studying and doing research on how different contemplative traditions like Buddhism, our own Vedas and Western Psychology (in specific Interpersonal Neurobiology) view Compassion.
In her journey she has been fortunate to have met His Holiness The Dalai Lama and discussed with him on the importance of Mindfulness for the future of humanity. Her other inspirations include Dr. Dan Siegel Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute and professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Dr. Paul Gilbert, British clinical psychologist, ex-head of the Mental Health Research Unit, Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
She believes that ‘Compassion is not a lucky accident; it is a biological capability that can be strengthened through the practice of Mindfulness’.
Her religion is ‘Gratitude and Compassion’.
She invites all of you to share the Present Moment with her and discover why our own brains and hearts are indeed temples.
