David Gomes has certainly led a varied life. As a younger man he trained under Vidal Sasoon to become a hairdresser to the stars, a time he knows that trained him to become an active listener. Later in life David became a film maker, but through both careers was always a natural mentor.
At the age of 47 he decided to put his natural ability to use and became a coach.
In David’s words:
The truth is, all of us are on a treasure hunt to find happiness. Some are obvious, like money, a job we enjoy, healthy relationships and achieving worthwhile goals.
Some are less obvious, like purpose, meaning and a sense of fulfillment and inner peace. We need a balance of both if we want to experience a joyful, significant life.
I have been referred to as a practical thinker, a sounding board and the mindfulness guy. I provide refreshingly fresh perspectives. I am a self confessed enemy of the status quo and a believer in people’s dreams. I never give up on people or good ideas.
As a young man I had become dissatisfied with my life, in spite of what I had achieved and experienced. That unhappiness led me on a search. They say when the student is ready, the teacher arrives and that was true in my case.
I began an earnest study in one of the great wisdom and meditation traditions, and have been traveling on that path for over 30 years.
I think of mindfulness as medicine one can apply to any situation in life to feel happier and more resilient, and that naturally makes you more likely to achieve your goals and dreams.
