MINDFUL AT WORK

I’m thrilled you’ll be joining me, your colleagues and our partners at Naropa University for this eight-week online course starting on August 7 (with many opportunities for in-person discussions and events!) that explores the practice of mindfulness.

In this course we’ll learn what mindfulness is and how we can apply it to change, planning, leadership, teamwork—and so much more—both at work and in our everyday life. We’ll learn simple mindfulness practices to help reduce stress and enhance creativity, compassion, and communication and enjoy life more! Let’s face it: That sounds pretty amazing right about now.

Looking forward to taking this journey together!

P.S. To get the most benefit from this course, I recommend designating weekly 30-to 45-minute time slots on your calendar to allow yourself adequate time to focus on the material.

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

8-Week Online Course

Enhance Well-Being, Collaboration and Results

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!
