Mindfulness & Its Benefits
Mindfulness is described as the awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally wrote Jon Kabat-Zinn. Mindfulness meditation is the training that helps us discover and experience mindfulness in our lives. There are many benefits for mindfulness including stress reduction, improving physical and mental health, as well as improved focus, improved memory, and better sleep, just to name a few! Equally importantly, mindfulness meditation opens our perspectives and helps us be in harmony with our community and the planet, expanding our capacity to be empathetic and compassionate.
Isn’t it time we bring the benefits of mindfulness to our workday? Let’s improve our ability to manage the stress and anxiety associated with today’s demanding work environment and the challenges of remote and hybrid work. In this six-session course, which includes talks, mindfulness practices, and lively discussions, we will cover the fundamentals of mindfulness and how mindfulness can help reduce stress and anxiety at work. This course is intended for people who are eager to grow and develop skillful means to navigate the challenges of stress and anxiety at work. We welcome workers of all backgrounds and experiences, and we hope to have a diverse cohort to share this journey with.
Seven-week course, 50-minute session each week, via Zoom
Wednesdays, starting January 18 ending March 1, 2023
8:00 am to 8:50 am Pacific Time
Online portal for recordings, daily practices, and to connect with the community of like-minded people seeking to grow and develop new skills
Important notes from Pierre Khawand, the creator and facilitator of this program: Please note that this course is based on the science of mindfulness and is secular. If you currently have certain spiritual practices, religious endeavors, or any belief system, mindfulness practices can support you and deepen your work. Finally, I would like to acknowledge and honor the practitioners, scientists, and thought leaders who have paved the road to make mindfulness more accessible to more of us, from Jon Kabat Zinn, to Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, Sharon Salzberg, Richard Davidson, and many others–too many to mention, as well as the generations of eastern practitioners and their centuries of practice that led to the body of knowledge and experience that we can enjoy and treasure today! Looking forward to sharing these practices with you 🙂
