Wisdom of the Body

Feb 20, 2021

Listen to clinical psychologist, founder and CEO of OnePerfect, Dr. Sean Sullivan, discuss with Heather the importance of having tools to shift your mindset and find an authentic feeling experience of life, especially when we’re young and during transitional periods of life. You’ll learn about mindfulness-based stress reduction, how it’s possible to train your mind, and Dr. Sean will guide you through a quick presence meditation at the end.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How Dr. Sullivan learned to shift mindset very young from his father who was a professional tennis player, and other tools learned through studying psychology, mindfulness and meditating.
  • OnePerfect Meditation is a wellness app focused for employers and universities, which is currently being used by the University of California school system.
  • Dr. Sullivan's early work supporting kids in colleges around the time that school shootings were starting to increase.
  • How your brain is capable of producing a wide range of mental states, and how it’s possible to train yourself into different states through training.
  • How much we can benefit the mental health of young people during the college years by helping them learn about how their mind works.
  • Mindfulness-based stress reduction.
  • The challenge of getting off prescription drugs for conditions that are often considered mental in origin.
  • Why we have triggers about the idea of perfection, and how perfection in meditation is actually silence, presence, and the recognition that life is perfect as it is.
