Why subscribe to The Content•ment Corner?

Welcome to The Content•ment Corner: a space to explore the range of content for conscientious readers.

Contentment (n.): a state of happiness and satisfaction.

Content (n.): a form of marketing focused on creating information that does not explicitly promote a brand but is intended to stimulate interest.

I write about creating a life with purpose, mindful marketing, and sharing the teachings that most inspire me.

I see so many parallels to consistent mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation (but not limited to just those two) and building your purposeful vision. Whether that’s through your business, project, career, or way of life. Our ability to be grounded, agile, and mindful is so needed right now. Life is one long Spiral — with patience, practice, and persistence we will all find our own version of success.

A bit more about me:

Hello! My name is Brenda. I am a number of things and titles in life. I imagine you may be too and one reason you’re here. At the heart of it all, I am a teacher — my forever muse is learning and in yoga philosophy that is Saraswati the goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning.

I am a yoga and meditation teacher with over 500-hours of training and now close to a decade of teaching (Mother of the Mind and InsightTimer).

I love to write — from journal entries to blogs, website copy, thoughts, emails, and poetry. A lot of it lives in my head but some of it has made it to my blog. And this place seems like a good addition to that!

I started blogging after my first trip to India in 2017 and ever since then things really shifted for me. Before that, I graduated from Columbia with a Masters of Public Health. I worked at health organizations, mental health tech, a pharma marketing agency...

And finally, like I said after that trip to India something shifted in me, I became a full-time yoga teacher while working at a yoga startup. A pretty interesting combination where I got to use my business and marketing skills and also teach to their clients.

Long story short I eventually ventured off on my own — creating businesses that represent my values. OMM (Of the Mind Marketing) is a one-stop mindful marketing consultancy supporting small-to-midsize conscious businesses. From coaching and strategy to solopreneurs and startups — where I get to write, co-create content, and strategize while continuing to make an impact in people’s lives. And Mother of the Mind is my teaching project and a culmination of the practices that most inspire me.

All to say Welcome! I hope this space resonates with you and we can find a community of like-minded people interested in these intersections of mindful business, creation, and purposeful living. I love that this platform allows for comments, something I didn’t realize I missed from my previous email marketing platform. And well, you can always unsubscribe :-p
