Patt Lind-Kyle has a broad range of interests. She has taught in the academic world, practiced as a management consultant in the business community and has had her own private counseling practice. Her research and interest in the mind/brain field led her to develop a learning style assessment company to help children and parents understand how they learn. She has been involved in the teaching and application of personality styles to individuals and organizations for the past 20 years. She has applied the styles research to learning/teaching methods, career guidance, relationship and communication skills, and the extensive study and practice of neuro-monitoring and mind training tools.
Ms. Lind-Kyle’s current interest is working with the new tools of neuro-monitoring to help individuals become more effective with their brain/mind potential. She has completed an 18-month research project learning how individuals shift their mental, emotional and spiritual view of themselves and the world to function in a larger, more comprehensive view of reality.
The passion for understanding the relationship between the brain and the mind has come from 35 years of personal exploration through extensive meditation practice. She has studied with a variety of teachers in the Theravada tradition doing as many as twenty or more ten day to two week retreats, several month long retreats, two three month retreats and a six month long self retreat. She teaches meditation classes using the model of brain/mind exploration and works with individuals customizing the unique way an individual can find their own path of inner exploration.
Ms. Lind-Kyle’s consulting focus includes executive coaching, Brain-Mind development for high performance, stress management, optimal health and how women can lead and manage more effectively.
As a professor of Community Health and Dental Hygiene, she taught for 15 years at the University of Hawaii, Foothill College, San Jose State University, and University of California at San Francisco. Her academic preparation has been a BS at University of Southern California in Biology and an MA at California Institute of Integral Studies in East/West Psychology.
Patt’s early interest was in the research and development of inner development and optimal performance. One such focus was an in-depth research program with woman leaders. She interviewed over 40 woman leaders on the West Coast to find what happens to women working in a man’s environment. She focused her study on how the male work place has affected women leaders feminine qualities, their health, their professional outlook and their concerns as spouses and companions. Her book that describes this work and her own story as a professional woman is entitled, When Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up: A Woman’s Tale of Healing the Immune System and Awakening the Feminine (Swan/Raven & Co., 1992). Patt is also a contributor in an anthology, Audacious Aging with her chapter entitled “Building Community from the Inside Out” (Elite Books, 2009).
