Being Mindful with the Spiritual Litigator
About This Show
Show Info: This podcast is for high achieving attorneys whose passion for the practice of law may have been extinguished by years of stress, self doubt and anxiety. Cheyne Scott gives advice from the inside of the profession and can relate to other attorneys who experience the pressures of the billable hour, the hierarchy of a mid-sized law firm and the day to day pressures of circumstances out of our control, such as the actions and attitudes of adversaries, clients, supervisors and judges. Mindfulness is not just about being zen and sitting meditating on a mountain or on the beach. It is about accepting, observing and noticing what is going on in the moment without judgment. Mindfulness is also about noticing the ways that make you the most effective lawyer; noticing what is and what is not in your control; and knowing when it is time to let go. The goal of this podcast is to discuss how mindfulness can lead to increased satisfaction, fulfilment and success not only in the practice of law but in all areas of an attorney’s life.
