We aspire to a future in which all people feel welcomed and nourished, much like sharing a meal at a table or cooking together in a kitchen. We recognize that inclusivity and support are the ingredients that bring people together and foster long-term relationships. These values, combined with our expertise in law, mindfulness coaching, and public policy, culminate to form Thought Kitchen and the services we provide.
Our diversified offerings - Public Policy Consulting, Supplier Diversity Consulting, and Mindful Life & Work Coaching - work in tandem to create a holistically well society where everyone feels respected and supported.
Mindful Life & Work
Thought Kitchen’s mindful life and work team offers mindfulness-based training and coaching to support stress resilience, enhance brain function and emotional regulation, and increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging by strengthening cultural competency.
Depending on the topic(s) of interest and amount of time committed, offerings are available in 1 hour, ½ day, 1 day, and1-3 day sessions. Offerings to more than one individual may begin with the practice of container building, which is intentionally creating the conditions under which all participants can build trust and feel free to engage in open and honest discussion. These trauma-informed sessions are individualized to meet the needs of our clients and can be provided in-person and/or online.
