This week on the donothing podcast, listen to my insightful conversation with corporate meditation and mindfulness coach Elizabeth Prather. Elizabeth has taught mindfulness in many settings and is passionate about using it to cultivate business environments where individuals can thrive and perform at their very best.

In addition, she teaches mindfulness to individuals and coaches those who are struggling to find meaning and purpose in their lives while looking for support along the way.

Elizabeth’s areas of expertise include managed care provider services operations, fast-paced and rapidly growing organizations, training, customer service, healthcare consulting, non-profit program management and travel management.

Elizabeth’s “Mindfulness at Work” programs integrate her deep mindfulness practice and business acumen to ensure sustainable results for clients. As a Senior Consultant and Trainer with the Potential Project (a global leader in corporate-based mindfulness programs), Elizabeth brings her expertise to organizations looking for improved performance and culture change.

Elizabeth divides her time between working and immersing herself into mindfulness and meditation through learning and extended retreats. She engaged in a three-year silent meditation retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, which was a transformative experience. During that retreat, it became clear to her that she should share the benefits of mindfulness and meditation with others—especially in the work environment.
