Elizabeth Prather was introduced to mindfulness and meditation over 20 years ago and she integrated it into her own work environments with great success. She has more than 15 years of leadership experience in health care management, non-profit and travel. Her areas of expertise have included managed care provider services operations, successfully managing in fast paced, rapidly growing organizations, training, customer service, strategic and operational healthcare consulting and travel management.
Elizabeth is an experienced teacher of mindfulness, including as a volunteer in her community. Elizabeth is passionate about bringing mindfulness into organizations to cultivate environments where individuals can thrive and perform at their very best. Elizabeth’s Mindfulness at Work programs integrate her deep mindfulness practice and business acumen to ensure sustainable results for clients. As a Senior Consultant and Trainer with the Potential Project, a global leader in corporate based mindfulness programs, Elizabeth brings her expertise to organizations looking for improved performance and culture change.
In addition, she is interested in teaching mindfulness to individuals and coaching those who are struggling to find meaning and purpose in their lives while looking for support along the way. With a deep love of nature and travel, Elizabeth leads immersive experiences into the wilderness and abroad to help inspire and uplift you, using mindfulness as a core element of the journeys.
In more recent years, Elizabeth divided her time between work and immersion into mindfulness and meditation through learning and extended retreats. Elizabeth engaged in a three year silent meditation retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition from 2010-2012, which was a transformative experience. During that retreat, it became clear to her that she should share the benefits of mindfulness and meditation with others – especially in the work environment.
