Gord mismanaged stress when he was younger, including through his early commercial flying life. This brought about general anxiety and emotional turmoil for him, and he suffered. Through a caring recommendation in 2007, Gord discovered mindfulness awareness practices (MAPs) and techniques. Gradually he has been redefining his life through exploring and adopting MAPs, and he is driven toward exploring self-awareness as it contributes to situational awareness and resilience. He incorporates all of this into his work in flight simulators, in classrooms, and in the cockpits of commercial airplanes.
Gord joined Mindful Aviator early in 2020 as Director of Communications and Online Coaching. He offers individual and group training in Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPS), consultations, industry support and group speaking engagements. To see when Gord’s next online class begins, click here.
