Ten to Zen is a simple, effective and fuss-free guide to help you start your day in the right head-space to prepare for the challenges it may bring.
Each morning most of us will spend about ten minutes in the shower, ten minutes making and eating breakfast but no time at all clearing our minds. Ten to Zen uses a combination of four therapeutic models - Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy - in a simple, easy-to-follow programme.
You will learn:
> How to settle your mind quickly
> How to focus and retrain your brain on dealing with stress
> How to restructure unhelpful patterns of thinking
> How to develop ways of communicating that are more effective
Ten to Zen was developed by Owen O'Kane to encourage new principles for living based on his experience as a psychotherapist and his many years of caring for the dying in the field of palliative care, which has hugely influenced how he works and how he views life.
Owen O'Kane has a dual medical and psychotherapy background and is a clinical lead for a mental health service in the NHS. He is also the founder of Ten to Zen, a business for stress management training, through which he delivers workshops on Mindfulness and the Ten to Zen solution across the UK and Ireland. He grew up in Belfast during the period known as The Troubles, which he describes as a great training ground for understanding the anxious mind. His clients include BBC Worldwide, Goldman Sachs, Bupa, Virgin Atlantic and the NHS.
