He has been incorporating his knowledge of various contemplative practices to create a system that is comprehensive and tailored to meet the needs of any individual student. That is why Mitch works with the TME. Too often meditation and mindfulness coaches are stuck in a bubble of the one technique they have learned.

Through the years he has worked in with large public companies as well as start-ups. He understands the pressures and stresses that people face each day and has the tools to change perspectives and paradigms. His work has been successfully adopted by corporations as well as individuals in classes, seminars, or private sessions.
