Mindfulness and Awareness
Through the discipline of mindfulness one grows more familiar with one’s mind, the messages of the body, and the effects of one’s behavior. Reactive patterns of thought, speech and behavior yield to the vibrancy and freshness of the present-moment. With greater awareness and confidence in entering unknown territory, the release of habitual patterns reduces personal stress and allows the workplace environment to become dynamic and creative.
Intensive training in mindfulness and awareness cultivates mental clarity, stability, resiliency, flexibility, creativity, strength and intuition within individuals, teams, and within the organization as a whole. Inner qualities of courage, curiosity, empathy, wisdom and sense of humor bring greater joy and satisfaction in life.
Mindful Work Environments offerings can be designed to suit the needs of a variety of workplace settings. The full course is an eight-session training program in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction with a special focus on developing confidence and communication skills. Participants will learn a variety of mindfulness tools including the sitting and walking meditation and mindful yoga. Further exploration of mindfulness and its application to daily life is encouraged between sessions.
