– Dr. Eric Holsapple

Mindfulness can help you to:

  • Truly see and hear other people to reduce discord, which ultimately fosters better relationships.
  • Be more present for your organization, making you a stronger leader.

  • Reduce repetitive and unproductive thoughts.
  • Influence employees and coworkers to be more open and productive.
  • Be fully engaged in the process of business in intimate detail.
  • Take everything impersonally.

Through online sessions and live in-person workshops, Living in the Gap’s mindfulness programs teach transformational methods for personal and professional development – how to live in “the Gap.”*

You’ll explore soul-driven leadership that creates meaningful connections, recognize community service as a way to give back, and learn how to implement lifestyle habits that increase your performance in business while reducing stress.

Get started by enrolling in one of our mindfulness programs.

*What is the Gap?


When we refer to the Gap, we mean being present in the moment, fully aware of our internal state and external surroundings. It’s the space between our random thoughts and inner dialogue that is the source of peace, joy, and happiness. To be able to live in this Gap gives us clarity, vision, and intention and allows us to be successful like we never imagined. Our mindful leadership programs are designed to help you reach this mindful state.
