Hello and welcome to Mindful Brain!
My name is Ela Amarie and I am a Psychologist and a certified Mindfulness Trainer. As a Romanian woman, I have found a second home in the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland where I founded Mindful Brain in 2012.
Although my life is firmly devoted to mindfulness teaching now, this was not always so.
My professional life began with thirteen years of experience in Human Resources, mainly in the field of Talent Management. My life was uprooted in 2010, though, when the company I worked for was reorganized and I was forced to make a change. It was then that I found myself struggling and began a personal search for greater balance and well-being. During my journey into growth and self-awareness, I delved into research on the mind, the brain, and practical applications of mindfulness and neuroscience. When I applied this research to my own life, the benefits were remarkable.
I have learned useful skills to help me live a more balanced and present life and cope with stress and worry. Mindfulness taught me to live in the present, to simply enjoy and truly savour each moment. My mind transformed and my life changed in such a positive, beautiful way that I felt compelled to share my experience and knowledge of mindfulness with those looking to improve their quality of life personally and professionally.
Because of this, I decided to change my career for good. My work is now focused on how to nurture optimal health, well-being and performance through the practice of mindfulness.
