About the Authors
Jackie Reardon (1962, born in England, currently living in the Netherlands) is founder and creator of Friendly Eyes, a hands-on philosophy that teaches how to deal with pressure, improve focus and enjoy challenges in all facets of life. She has worked with world champions and Olympic gold medallists both in individual and team sports, world performers and captains of industry.
As a young adult, she played on the professional tennis circuit. She struggled with her emotions, over which she sometimes lost control. After leaving professional tennis, she started coaching tennis players of all levels drawing upon her expertise in high performance. Many years later, she discovered Vipassana meditation. It was the beginning of finding inner calm and new discoveries and set her life on a new course.
She started integrating her knowledge of high performance with meditation and mindfulness techniques. To her great joy, her approach led to students getting better results and having more fun. It encouraged her to develop a wide array of mindfulness exercises using sport as a metaphor, suitable for anyone, both on and off the sports field, interested in improving their performance.
Together with novelist Hans Dekkers she co-wrote Mindset, a mental guide for sport and Mindset in Daily Life. In 2017 she teamed up with Ay Mey Lie and Ed Wrede to make this knowledge available in an online platform called Friendly Eyes. The free mental training program, with over 65 videos, shows you how to develop world-class laser focus using a compassionate look at the world.
