What if work was less effort and daily challenges felt lighter and more manageable?

In today’s turbulent work environment, we are asked to hold the “big picture” while simultaneously juggling immediate priorities and work relationships. But fleeting thoughts and emotions can distract us at crucial moments.

What if we could increase our capacity for focus, innovation, and collaboration?

Mindfulness — an inherent human ability — is strengthened through awareness and practice. With simple tools and basic skills that expand mental and emotional capacity, we can respond skillfully to difficult situations with confidence as we make decisions and negotiate respectfully with coworkers.

A mindful revolution is spreading across all sectors of professional life as organizations integrate mindfulness practices to grow efficiency, compassion, and creativity while employees increasingly seek balance at work and at home with self-awareness and equanimity.

eNaropa’s online learning platform allows you to participate at your own pace from wherever you are. The blended-learning virtual classroom presents multiple options to experience both pre-recorded and live lectures, engage directly with faculty, share ideas with classmates, practice meditation, and apply leadership skills.

Please join us!

What if you could meet stress gracefully and address challenges with humor and creativity?
