Christopher Dines

Biography

Christopher Francis Dines (born 19th August 1983) is an English mindfulness teacher, trainer, writer, founder of Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals (MBP) and former House DJ/Producer.

Having a deep love for music, Christopher left high-school at 15 to pursue a full-time career as an electronic house DJ. Having DJ’ed at prestigious venues such as City Loud at Turnmills, Ministry of Sound, Defected In The House at Pacha and Garage City, Christopher’s DJ’ing career took him to Asia where he travelled extensively. This subsequently led him to remix and produce underground electronic dance music.

While remixing national chart hit band Afro Medusa to artists such Marlon D, Samba La Casa, Steal Vybe and Onxy (Soul2Soul), mindfulness was gradually becoming a subtle practice. This led to a deep exploration of the human mind and roads to emotional wellbeing and self-realisation. This has been accomplished through intense self-education and with the invaluable help and guidance of enlightened mentors.

He ‘retired’ from the electronic dance music industry in June 2006 to give public talks on inspirational ideas and self-awareness and create personal development and mindfulness workshops and courses. Christopher Dines trains employers, employees and self-referrals to amplify emotional intelligence, emotional resilience and mindfulness in the workplace.

Christopher is the author of Mindfulness Meditation: Bringing Mindfulness into Everyday Life, Manifest Your Bliss: A Spiritual Guide to Inner Peace, A Ticket to Prosperity, A Ticket to Prosperity: Spiritual Lessons for an Abundant Life (Revised Edition), The Mystery of Belief: How to Manifest Your Dreams, and Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals.

Christopher has led mindfulness meditation workshops for Public Health England, Mental Health Commissioners, The Suffolk Recovery Festival, East Coast Recovery Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Rekindling Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centre, Wealth Management Companies and runs private courses at Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden.

Christopher’s new book, Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals (MBP), is being released on Wednesday 1st July 2015. The foreword has been written by medical doctor and wellness pioneer, Dr Barbara Mariposa.

Smashwords Interview

What's your most recent title about?
My most recent title is "Mindfulness Meditation: Bringing Mindfulness into Everyday Life". The book is about being present and enjoying our capacity to feel peaceful and content in the present moment. However, the emphasis of this book is to remind the reader to bring mindfulness into everyday life, which means that we have to let go of negative emotions and unhealthy attachments to outcomes. No one can be mindful and peaceful in the present moment without being able to forgive and be compassionate, loving, kind and open-minded.
What do you generally write about?
I write about different approaches to practising meditation and yoga and I have written books on personal development and self-awareness. All of my books are grounded in the teachings of the Wisdom Traditions with practical tools to enhance mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
