Mindfulness in Workplace Relationships

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This course will introduce participants to the paradigm of mindfulness as studied from Eastern and Western cultural and spiritual practices such as Celtic mysticism, Christian contemplative, and Buddhism. The process of this exploration is to approach each idea with openness rather than factual certainty and allow the participants to be inquisitive about mindfulness' place in the professional world.

In this course participants will be introduced to the four essential elements of being a mindful worker: body and breath, thought patterns, emotional regulation and actions. Each element will be discussed, reflected upon and then experienced by engaging in various mindful practices related to each element.

Participants in this course will be introduced to concepts and techniques that will increase their capacity to think with clarity, act with compassion and speak with gentle authority.

Participants will complete the course with an introductory understanding of the biology, the technology and the spirit of mindful practice. The engagement in some practices throughout the workshop can be the beginnings of a choice for participants in their ongoing development as a mindful worker.
