While working as a software architect and management consultant at Fortune 500 and 1000 on Wall Street, Mila Diamond was also teaching meditation and career success to professionals and students in New York. She came back to California in 2001 and created a training company that integrates business/career with focused meditation and mindfulness.
One night in 2002, Mila awoke from a dream at 2.30 am with an idea for a new name for the company – Diamond Mind. It was a perfect fit because the training she was doing for high-tech engineers wasn’t unlike polishing and refining a diamond – developing a mind that was brilliant, clear, laser focused, efficient, precise, strong, and filled with abundant energy.
In 2008, a couple of good friends, Tully Antill and David Sheardown, joined Mila. An amazing team was formed!
As a team, with our shared experience as computer engineers, trainers, entrepreneurs and life-long practitioners of meditation and mindfulness, we saw that bringing Diamond Mind Training to corporations can benefit more people than we could reach through small workshops and one-on-one coaching. In 2015 we scaled up Diamond Mind Training for Technology Companies.
We are so excited to be working with companies, their technical engineers and leaders and seeing the transformation and advanced leaps that people make when they engage Diamond Mind techniques to create cutting edge products!
We are geeks at heart and revel in the fact that a technical mindset is perfect for advanced meditation! While meditation is upgrading the “chip”, Diamond Mind mindfulness strategies upgrade the operating system of the mind – which is great for original thinking and pragmatic product development and business! It’s a lot of fun!
