Modern society has lead to a life of distractions and long hours; some research indicates that the average attention span is 8-11 seconds. Today’s challenges and competitive environment are leading to burnout and lost productivity. Stress, mental health issues and even suicides are on the rise but now folks have the opportunity to overcome these stressors. SatiMind has developed a resilience skills training program to manage stress, enhance communications, and promote peak performance for individuals, teams, and organizations.
The Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini says, “It’s critical to invest in the human machine in trying to eliminate stressors to build resiliency. In our world, the only thing that’s going to happen with change is that it’s going to get faster and the organizations that have capable people need to have them be resilient in order to be able to make it and change, adapt and move forward. Part of creating change in an organization is creating this resiliency.”
Going down the Path of The Resilient Mind can give a recipe or a system to build resilient individuals and radically change the mind, body and relationships. Living this path will help lower stress & anxiety, reduce burnout, help with depression, increase focus, and help the mind see things with more optimism and clarity. If you have the courage to grow, want to change and would like to perform at your optimal potential then you’ve come to the right place.

About the Founder, Erik Leslie
My story begins in 2001 where shortly after 9/11 I started a meditation practice. I didn’t know what I was doing or even how to begin. But then at the age of 20, I was in a car accident where my girlfriend died, I suffered a major concussion and my life changed. Throughout the next 2 years, I developed many symptoms of ptsd, like depression, anxiety, stress and lack of focus. Then he saw a “Time Magazine” article that claimed the best natural stress reliever was mindfulness and meditation. Through the following months and years I found the resources to develop a truly beneficial meditation practice where I learned how to regulate and control my thoughts, emotions and breathing.
Within a few weeks my symptoms had lessened and within 6 months they were totally gone. As a result I ended up being able to shift the stress symptoms into post traumatic growth and over many years of practice I have experienced many of the benefits that meditation and resilience skills have offered to millions of folks.
I then wondered, if meditation could help shift my experience while in the mist of trauma, could it help me in other areas of my life? Short answer is yes, in areas like school, peak performance in sports or on the job, communication and conflicts in the workplace, as well as many of my life’s goals and dreams. Turns out meditation is a path of purpose and ended up helping me 10 times over throughout the years.
After earning a graduate degree in psychology and becoming certified in mindfulness and resilience training I looked to a career teaching others how to get many of the same benefits I experienced. In last 10 years I have worked with a wide range of clients to help them start a practice of mental training through meditation and breathing techniques; including soldiers, athletes, executives, doctors and now I want to help you. There is amazing power within each of us, and learning to cultivate the power of resilience can move many of us through obstacles and challenges we never thought possible.
