I own a technology company with 14 employees that has constant deadlines and stress that just comes along with the Job. I knew Ken could help! Over a couple month period Ken led us though mindfulness meditation.
Even from the first session, I was so impressed at the calm and quiet I experienced. What a great way to start the day, as well as learning some valuable mindfulness techniques that could be practiced at our desks during the day. I would highly recommend Ken LaDeroute!

"Ken is a coach whose presence with a client brings to mind a very important concept for me — sanctuary. His presence is a gift to his clients.
His clear attention, calm demeanor, close following, reassuring words, insightful questions — these all wrap around the client’s reality in a way that provides safety and an opportunity to access what is at heart for them.
It is from places of sanctuary that some of the most powerful life-effects can be imagined and begun."
Ken’s voice tone and general coaching style combine to build this sacred space, and you can glimpse the integrity of his own journey in the gentle strength and calmness of his ability to respond.
His presence is a gift to his clients."

"In my field as a public interest environmental lawyer, there is no shortage of deadlines, urgent issues or other stress-inducing situations.
And as someone who is especially susceptible to stress and anxiety, I've long felt meditation could be beneficial but also was intimidated and hesitant to learn the practice on my own.
Recently, I was fortunate to attend a 7-week Mindfulness and Meditation series that Ken put on at the public library.
Ken was so charismatic and used such simple, straightforward techniques that made the introduction to meditation approachable and seamless.
With great thanks to his clear guidance, I feel I now have a foundation and some of the basic tools to continue to learn and improve upon the practice. I highly recommend Ken as a coach for practitioners at any level!"

Having a type “A” personality, Ken has taught me to live in the present.
I have used his technique of repeating the word, peace, if I can’t sleep at night because my brain is thinking of a million things.
When I feel overwhelmed I do deep breathing and sit quiet to calm my body down.
I also bought one of Ken’s CD’s and listen to the beautiful music which is very calming.
I have gone to Ken’s sessions in an unsettled mood and when the session was over I was serene.
