Presentation Description

Are you bombarded by emails, phone calls and social media? Do you feel overwhelmed and distracted more often than you feel calm and productive?  Cultivating a formal, personal mindfulness practice has been well documented to increase mental focus and concentration, promote clarity of thinking, increase learning capacity and memory and enhance a sense of overall well-being.   Mindfulness programs at companies as diverse as General Mills, Apple and Google have received praise for helping employees manage stress more effectively and for promoting better communication in the workplace. 

The roundtable will include:
• What is Mindfulness Training, and where does it come from?
• The science behind Mindfulness Training
• Instruction in Mindfulness Practices
• Mindfulness and Communication
• Discussion – Mindfulness and the workplace
