Mindfulness in the Workplace
Workplace training sessions are all based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction program (MBSR). Half-day and Full-day training sessions allow you to provide Mindfulness training to your employees over a period of time while still following the MBSR curriculum.
The Full MBSR program is an eight week experimental program including a half-day Silent Retreat. Each class (2.5 hrs.) is covers a specific mindfulness skill (e.g., Perception, Communication, Habitual Stress Response) formal and informal practices, and opportunities to discuss progress and challenges participants are currently experiencing in their Mindfulness practice.

Each Mindfulness class builds upon the prior creating a seamless application of mindfulness that may be integrated into one’s everyday personal and professional life.
