Living Life Fully Through Present Moment Awareness
An 8-Module LIVE Online Course and Practical Journey with Colin Chenery
Counselor, Coach and Founder of Six Circles of Mindfulness
Discover essential practices for cultivating and integrating mindful presence to enhance your innate qualities that open you to living more freely and authentically.
Imagine living from deep inner peace while being fully present with daily and life challenges, conflicts and change.
What if this same sense of being, empowers a more inspiring experience in your daily life, for cultivating a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with yourself and others, in both your personal and business relationships?
Imagine being consistently less prone to reactions and more likely to act and speak from heart-felt values rather than saying or doing things you regret later.
Feeling more free and connected to your own authenticity and integrity, provides more energy and vitality, when that energy isn't lost to stress.
This also connects you to more peace, joy and wellness to get more out of the life you have and to create the life you want.
The problem is endless cycles of distractions and demands that modern culture serves up daily, competing to take us away from our deeper being.
Despite our best intentions, feeding our roles and responsibilities is like feeding a hungry wolf.
The reason is that in our efforts to ‘be more’ and ‘do more’, we get entangled in the machinations of our busy lives and lose touch with our essential nature.
Cycles of tension and compromise make it increasingly difficult to find the space and place of inner-being that you intuitively know is there.
Accumulating mental, emotional and physical stress combine with unconscious inner personal barriers to dropping into our depth and wholeness, and creating what we truly want.
This impacts all aspects of life, limiting your potential, vitality, and creativity.
A new dimension in your awareness can reset your approach to living from a deepening sense of self. Powerful choices and positive shifts are directly and intimately available to you!
It takes the right practice, or mental training, to recognise and effectively implement new possibilities.
When you consciously integrate what I call ‘Six Circles of Mindfulness’, you bring a continually refreshed and vital sense of self and life into each moment. You approach life more creatively and gain a new level of fulfillment by bringing more ‘being’ into ‘doing’.
That’s why I created “The Six Circles of Mindfulness” program. You are guided through a practical framework for identifying and releasing inner barriers, cultivating greater awareness and presence, while redefining your values and vision, to live more authentically and freely.
My promise is you will experience a shift in perspective and capacity for experiencing abiding peace, joy, and grace, no matter what life challenges bring.REGISTER NOW
By the end of this course, you’ll experience:
- experience more choice around perceptions and emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

- realize your next level in living your ideals, and the power of aligning values to your actions
- manage stress better and bring more heart-felt presence to challenges or painful experiences
- deepen your sense of meaning and purpose in daily life and making a difference to others.
Whether you've been putting others or your business first and you're ready to do more of what you love, or you've been building your own empire and now are ready to give back, this will help you align with your highest inspiration.
My Personal Story
One of the most challenging times in my life began with the lead up and death of my mother to cancer. It felt like a premature loss of a close and influential friend and parent. Thankfully, my marriage, beautiful family, success in a mission-driven business, along with deep spiritual convictions, helped me deal with it meaningfully.
Then a series of events changed everything even more. My business came under malicious legal attack, an eight year battle wearing down energy, focus, the business, business partner relationships, personal expenses and more. Additionally, multiple diverse personal financial investments all went under, burning personal savings and assets. My wife being one of the business partners, meant we shared in all the burdens of personal and business life. What we worked hard to create, crumbled around us. The relentless pressure on our relationship led to an eventual marriage meltdown.
This time I really struggled to feel anything else but devastated. In the aftermath, I focused on supporting my two youngest children to complete schooling and begin establishing their independence, my oldest already well into that stage.
Then it was starting over again for me as well, both inside myself and literally in a worldly sense.
The next few years were soul-searching as I traveled through India, China, and Japan, gradually consolidating my life lessons and knowledge, reassessing my life direction, while I did mountain retreats and treks, yoga teacher training and martial arts training. Something began to stand out to me.
The passion for life, to take it all on as an adventure, was not the part of me that was in pain and in need of healing. An inner presence inside was the key to indestructible wholeness, to living with connection, fulfillment and being of value. It provided for my ability to be present, objectively aware of my own thoughts and feelings, as well as the situation around me with patience, insight, and empathy.
It empowered my resilience and aspirations, my life roles, in leadership, being supportive and collaborative with others. It helped my creative thinking and decision-making. Mindful presence became front-and-center as my constant in a life of changes. Combined with relevant skill sets, mindful presence contributed greatly to getting on with life, enjoying the highs and getting through the tough times.
I am thankful for my years of formal and informal practices, personal experience and cultivation of mindful presence that have provided a resilient means to a ‘fullness of being’ in the toughest of moments, while enriching everyday moments and life experiences. My years of practice and being put to life tests, has shown me that there is a means of empowering your connection from within to all things that is the indestructible vitality of your love and passion for life.
Out of my own journey has come a mindfulness approach, to assist people to bring inner being more fully into their lives in times of success and loss or challenge. This holistic approach cultivates presence mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I invite you to come on a journey with me to empower your own life adventure in an experiential and practical 'Six Circles of Mindfulness' program.
