Cindy Cooper, our co-supervision lead, passed away on Wednesday 1st March 2017.
Cindy made an enormous contribution to the lives of so many people. Mindfulness-based Supervision (MBS) was dear to her heart. She dedicated much of her later working life to its growth and development, which included: finding words to articulate its nature leading to the development of a model for MBS; training new mindfulness-based supervisors; developing good practice guidelines; and of course supervising numerous mindfulness-based teachers.
Cindy was a core member of the Mindfulness Network staff and was our co-supervision lead. She helped shape our supervision vision, make decisions about future directions, build our network of mindfulness-based supervisors and support their growth. Cindy always kept very high standards, working with deep integrity as well as an enormous generosity and warmth. All of this work for the Mindfulness Network was given freely.
All of us at the Mindfulness Network are deeply grateful for Cindy’s passionate guidance and look forward to being able to continue to develop and guide high-quality MBS to the field. She is very much missed.
