I’m Lucy Keller
Educator and Mindfulness Teacher and Trainer
I was born and raised in the U.K and studied a bachelors in Sociology. This ignited a passion in wanting all people to be able to access a quality education and a healthy life.
I began my career in Education over two decades ago as a qualified school teacher and progressed into leadership roles. At the same time, through practising Mindfulness and Yoga, I realised that learning care of minds, bodies and emotions was extremely important for people, especially in an increasingly busy world. After many years of practice, I went on to become a qualified Mindfulness and Yoga teacher for both children and adults. This lead me to becoming the Director of Mindfulness at United World College in Thailand, where I served a wonderful community of people including teachers, parents and students.
I have worked in schools both in the U.K and Thailand, that offer IB, PYP and the British National Curriculum. I have gained skills in designing and facilitating courses and workshops, and writing curriculum for schools and organisations.
My personal practice and training in mindfulness has offered me the opportunity to develop and gain insight into the way minds work and the challenges people may face. I seek to bring a kindness, curiosity and non-judgement to my work so that people feel they really can explore their internal worlds in a safer environment.
My Values & Beliefs
Kindness & Compassion
Through the practice of Mindfulness, we learn to develop kindness and compassion for ourselves and other people. Developing self-compassion can help us to be kinder to others. Self-compassion means that we begin to treat ourselves with the same kindness and respect as we would a good friend. For many of us, it takes a little patience, to begin with, but it can help reduce feelings of stress and also motivate us.
The practice of non-judgement teaches us to smile at our flaws and see ourselves as human. Non-judgement is the key to being able to accept yourself and others as you and they are.
Acceptance & Inclusivity
When we step into practising Mindfulness, is it helpful to remember that each of us will bring along a different lived experience to the practice. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and what may be helpful for one person may not be helpful for another at a particular time. Creating a space where people feel they are met exactly as they are is important, particularly in group settings.
By always being curious about ourselves and the world around us, we can bring a child-like and light quality to all our experiences and see them as opportunities to learn and grow.
