Professional Mindfulness Facilitator, MTI - Mindfulness Training Institute
Certified Mindfulness Teacher, IMTA - International Mindfulness Teachers Association
Preetum Shenoy is a positive change catalyst, resilience builder and holistic health advocate. She enjoys empowering individuals, leaders and groups to flex their resilience muscles through evidence-based practices for embodied mindfulness, neuroplasticity, positive psychology and conscious leadership, to help them navigate stress and burnout, chronic pain and illness, and other challenging circumstances with a greater sense of agency, peace, freedom, and yes, even gratitude and joy!
While she’s experimented with various contemplative practices since 2008, she has since become a dedicated practitioner of Insight Meditation (Vipassana). She enjoys integrating teachings from diverse traditions and practices (including Yoga and QiGong), and being an eternal student of the world, inspired by deep wisdom from Mother Nature, her communities, her students, and from every present moment experience. In addition, she has completed extensive training under Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach and Linda Graham at the intersection of mindfulness meditation, Buddhist psychology, and evidence-based neuroplasticity, compassion and resilience-building techniques, and is currently completing her advanced certification as a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher through the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley and the Awareness Training Institute.
Additionally, Preetum holds an MBA with emphases in Corporate Strategy, Marketing, and Sustainable Development, and a BS in International Business and Spanish. Her 15+ years of experience in project management, program and team leadership roles across industries and organizational environments ranging from lean startups to Fortune 100 corporations in the US, Europe and Asia, have informed her deep understanding of common organizational challenges across the spectrum of cross-cultural and interpersonal dynamics, and her appreciation for the opportunity to empower teams and individuals to mobilize positive change and realize their full potential when operating in greater alignment with their values on both individual and collective levels. Inspired by her long-standing meditation practice and her own chronic illness journey, she’s now especially passionate about catalyzing change on the more micro level of personal sustainability and resilience, believing that when individuals feel more calm, composed, confident and compassionate, we can deepen our capacity to heal ourselves and the world around us, enabling a more vibrant, sustainable future for all.
