"As an experienced coach, I took my time to choose the coach I wanted to work with and found in Jonathan the quality of presence, attention, care and stimulation I was looking for. I felt that Jonathan connected with who I truly am, and his warmth and embodied awareness made me feel supported, encouraged, appreciated such that I was able to dare to dream a bigger and bolder dream for myself. As a business owner and developer, I appreciated greatly Jonathan's confidence and interest in understanding what is important for me in my life and in my work. Jonathan embodies mindfulness so genuinely that I found myself thinking and questioning with greater clarity and depth. In addition, it was a pleasure."
--Hedy, Executive Coach & Consultant, Paris, France
"I decided to work with Jonathan after our short introductory call. He struck me at the time as someone with a strong ability to lead me to the changes I wanted but couldn't get outside myself enough to see how to do. During my time working with him, his ability to simultaneously connect and lead allowed me to integrate parts of myself that were not on the same page previously. The result is that for the first time, I feel I'm on the right track towards improving my career."

Providing both work- and life-coaching through asking questions I've not encountered before, as well as consistently having examples of philosophies to enable my own growth & endure through trying situations, Jonathan has made my experience with Mindful Life, Mindful Work nothing short of gratifying and fulfilling."
--Catherine, Business Development Associate, Palo Alto, CA
"I highly recommend Jonathan Reynolds for executive and business coaching. Jonathan's ease of being and skillful questions invite opening to deeper undercurrents at play. His kind, intelligent curiosity and refined attention models what leaders would do well to embody and I looked forward to each session in anticipation of learning more about myself -- even the parts I've actively avoided seeing in the past. Jonathan is a wise, compassionate and deep listener. He is efficient and grounded in approach. His coaching has positively impacted my ability to see clearly and make adjustments accordingly -- leading the change necessary for continued growth and opportunity within myself as well as my business."
--Dana, Executive Coach, Boise, ID
"Jonathan has been quite helpful in being a great sounding board and channeling your energy correctly to the right areas you need to address. Also, on the proactive side, one can benefit really well when you drive a conversation a bit and then Jonathan really susses out the core areas one needs to expand upon to make them better. I enjoyed my experience with him as he helped me define a definitive vision and help me articulate goals (aim for more); a fantastic intro statement and other factors. I would work with him again."

I've learned a lot, and gained a lot from our work together. I highly recommend him."
--Steven, Film Composer, Berkeley, CA
"Jonathan had a way of pulling deep, thought provoking questions out of our conversations. I would leave the session with pages of notes. He would
always leave me with an intention for the week and helped me work through some challenging situations at work. I look forward to working with him again soon!"
