I strongly believe that through a mindful posture in life, we can serve as models to younger generations on how to be more kind and compassionate toward ourselves and others.

About me - Sandra Born

My totem animal since I was a little girl is “le chameau”. For me, the camel represents endurance, persistence, strength and endearing goofiness! I relate to the qualities of a camel, particularly its ability to cross long desert plains with an impressive quantity of water in a kind of self-sustainable and empowered way. Through my path in coaching and mindfulness, the camel represents the perfect embodiment of what I would like to offer my clients: embracing the humps and bumps of the caravan/journey that is called Life!

I am a Swiss-Haitian psychologist who started my own (sometimes bumpy) mindfulness journey over 10 years ago. I share and implement my daily and mindful habits with my own family in a perfectly imperfect way. I am very conscious that having the beautiful responsibility of raising two preteen daughters is a challenging path with daily and lifelong lessons. I try to lead by example through cultivating a mindful, joyful, humble and kind approach toward myself and toward others.

I am convinced that we can develop our own awareness and ability to take a breath and choose our response towards the waves in our lives; even when these waves are as big as a tsunami, like an illness, the death of a loved one, an international move or smaller waves, like mood swings of teenagers.
