about keith jensen


I played high school basketball in San Diego, then played collegiate ball at New York University. I graduated with a B.A. in Communications, then went on to play professionally in the Philippines for 5 years. Since retiring, I became trained to teach a course called mPEAK, mindfulness-based Performance Enhancing Awareness and Knowledge, developed at UCSD's Center for Mindfulness alongside the Chopra Center's Pete Kirchmer.

During my rookie year, a deeper sense of intention arose within me. Rather than continuing to chase the spotlight, I began a search for a more intrinsically-fulfilling purpose. I watched with new awareness as the game exposed egoic habits and beliefs, noticing a clear correlation between my ability to be present and achieving success toward my goals. The game evolved into self-mastery.

During all of my free time, I found myself researching the field of optimal human potential. Most impactfully, I began a consistent practice of sitting in silence and learning my "self;" ultimately using my own experience as a case study in determining the ways in which mindfulness and meditation affect performance.

At the peak of my professional career, I walked away from the game I love to follow a deeper calling: teaching people the art of presence so they can experience greater levels of POWER, POISE, and PRODUCTIVITY.

My specialties:

  • Practices and exercises that uncover internal processes and deep-seeded beliefs to optimize potential as players and people

  • Key terminology to help contextualize the ways we relate to and learn from experience

  • Responses to different states of BE-ing that promote a felt sense of acceptance and freedom so we can perform at our PEAK!

I’ve been coaching and successfully teaching mindfulness based PEAK performance for 4 years. I’m also currently being trained to teach mindfulness to kids by Dr. Amy Saltzman and my three daughters.
