About Fergus Barrett
Fergus Barrett / My Story
I’ve had an incredible journey to becoming a mindfulness teacher.
In my 22 years in the Irish Defence Forces I learnt so much about people and teams. I got to travel to some amazing places and work in all types of conditions and environments.
I trained and worked in Australia as an outdoor instructor. For one year I lived the dream of living out in some of Australia’s most stunning wildernesses. I worked with so many beautiful people from all over the globe.
I trained as a life coach. This gave me a really good understanding of how I wanted to live my own life and that I was captain of my own ship.
I wrote the book ‘I am responsible for my own life: the day-to-day positive living model’.
I found mindfulness, or I sometimes think mindfulness found me. I then spent two years training to be a mindfulness teacher . Two years of learning , practicing and cultivating my own mindfulness practice. I am currently doing a masters in mindfulness based wellbeing in UCC.
The benefits of living a mindful life are huge. I became a mindfulness teacher to help other people find joy and happiness in their lives.
