Jim Posner,

Founder, The Mindful Advantage

I launched The Mindful Advantage in 2015 to help busy professionals decrease stress, increase focus and improve productivity.

I have been practicing Mindfulness Meditation for over 10 years. Prior to starting The Mindful Advantage I worked as a commercial real estate executive, owned and sold a successful construction company, and held high stress jobs on Wall Street.

In an effort to find my own work/life/family balance while juggling a demanding career, I began studying Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Meditation (MBSR). MBSR helped me so much that I felt compelled to teach others how to master and apply these techniques to enhance their own work/life/family balance.

I earned my BA at Cornell University, class of ‘91, completed the Practicum in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Professionals at Jefferson Myrna-Brind Center of Integrative Medicine, and also completed the Mindful Schools Curriculum Teaching Qualification Program. I recently guided a meditation session on Capitol Hill as a guest of Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan.

I live in New York City with my wife and 2 children.
