CBIA BizCast: Jelan Agnew on the Power of Mindfulness

CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Jelan Agnew, a licensed clinical social worker and mindfulness instructor at Copper Beech Institute.

Agnew began practicing mindfulness two minutes a day to help manage anxiety. She admitted it wasn’t easy at first but worked up to practicing for longer lengths of time, even completing a seven-day silent retreat. 

“What I love about mindfulness is there is a non-judgemental component that is not what you learned in other institutions, there is no shame or guilt,” she said. 

“When your mind shifts off topic, good, that is what it’s supposed to do. You become mindful the moment you decide to bring it back to that anchor.”

Agnew will lead a mindfulness exercise at CBIA’s When Women Lead conference May 19 at the AquaTurf in Plantsville.
