Sunada Takagi : Mindful Purpose Coaching

Mindful Purpose Coaching offers classes in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and individual life coaching for navigating life changes. MBSR is group instruction in the art of mindfulness, suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. Life coaching is personalized support for creating a more meaningful life, grounded in the principles of mindfulness.

While Sunada Takagi’s work is informed by her Buddhist practice, her methods are entirely secular and practical. She often draws from contemporary research on mindfulness and neuroscience. Her mission is to help individuals gain the skills to live happily in a way that’s uniquely their own.

Services provided: Group instruction in meditation and mindfulness, and individual coaching that builds personal skills such as self-awareness, confidence, and self-compassion.

Areas of specialty: Mindfulness as means toward a happier, more meaningful life.

Healing/healthy living philosophy: “We all come alive and thrive when we connect with basic human goodness, both in ourselves and others,” says Takagi. “Research shows that this is the key to living a happy and meaningful life. It’s a simple concept, but not one that’s easy to put into practice. Our past or current circumstances do not have to determine our future. Each of us has the capacity to shape the direction of our lives. I’ve seen it happen for so many people, and I know it’s possible for you.”
