Approaching yr finish and imminent Christmas get togethers is all the time a time when our ideas flip to those that will not be becoming a member of us this yr.
The Equilibrium workforce have been deeply saddened in April to be taught of the passing of Dr David Mason Brown. David was one of many founding administrators of In Equilibrium once we began out in 1998.
Many who attended David’s wellbeing programs earlier than his retirement in 2015 will bear in mind him as a passionate and educated coach who made a memorable impression on all these he encountered.
This buyer suggestions is typical of these we commonly acquired following David’s programs,
“The day has been described by employees as ‘the very best workshop they’ve ever attended’. Dr Mason Brown actually engaged with the group, sharing his intensive and completely fascinating information. The course content material was extraordinarily thought upsetting and all people left feeling constructive and energised to take management of their private wellbeing.“
Fellow founding director Alastair Taylor has penned the next tribute to this nice man.
“I misplaced depend of the variety of occasions individuals informed me that David Mason Brown modified their lives. I discovered this personally rewarding as a result of I used to be not directly related to him. The true credit score was, in fact, David’s.
Think about being able to ‘change somebody’s life‘? What a present to have. Dr David Mason Brown acquired this praise on many events each by way of the group workshops he delivered and when he helped individuals on a one-to-one foundation.
Other than caring for his household, David’s raison d’etre was to assist and encourage everybody he got here into contact with. Following intensive private analysis, David found that most of the greatest methods for combating stress have been rooted in complementary approaches to well being and wellbeing.
Again within the late 1990’s, convincing hardnosed enterprise managers that non-conventional methods have been good for them and their colleagues could possibly be an actual problem. However it was one which David managed together with his distinctive model of infectious enthusiasm, peppered with entertaining anecdotes and tales. Key to David’s success as a coach was his contagious fervour and complete perception within the recommendation he proffered.
Certainly one of David’s largest challenges was find out how to introduce company delegates to complementary well being methods he knew would assist them however all of the whereas sustaining standard credibility. The usage of ‘dowsing‘ was a working example. Though it is a pretty frequent analysis approach in France, it’s considered with scepticism within the UK and company purchasers objected to it.
So, though David agreed to take away it from his workshop content material, we have been perplexed once we nonetheless acquired the odd anti-dowsing suggestions from purchasers. It turned out that David demonstrated some dowsing through the coaching course breaks … ‘on the request of the delegates‘!
David knew dowsing may assist individuals and that was extra vital to him than business expediency. He believed he had discovered a suitable means across the subject!
Over time, I spent many days with David at his residence in North Berwick serving to him to arrange new coaching workshops. Though in idea this was work, I’ll by no means lose the sensation of internal contentment I skilled simply from spending time with him. My job was to assist be certain that his shows have been a business success. David was solely targeted on sharing with the members the information he passionately believed would enhance their well being.”
Dr David Mason Brown was a treasured colleague whose generosity with each his information and time was not solely shared with the learners in his workshops. All members of the In Equilibrium workforce benefitted from his knowledge and recommendation on a private stage, to not point out his fantastic firm and entertaining tales at our social get togethers. He’s dearly missed and can proceed to be fondly remembered by us all.
