Hello, my name is Manish Bansal. I am a senior project manager and a mindfulness practitioner. My journey into mindfulness began at a young age in India. My teacher in India taught me eastern practices focused on breathing, chanting and silent sitting that helped practice cultivation of awareness in the present moment. In US, I attended formal training of mindfulness through university programs. I have completed year long teacher training program at UCLA,MBSR training at UC-Irvine and Compassion Cultivation training(CCT) from Stanford University. I teach mindfulness at United Heath Group and through City of Rancho Santa Margarita.
