February 23, 2016, 2 pm EDT (11 AM PDT) Webinar: Mindfulness
The concept of mindfulness has been widely studied and applied to a variety of helping professions in clinical settings over the last few decades. It can be applied across a wide range of human experiences. The practice of mindfulness leads to a decrease in stress and anxiety as well as an increase in overall emotional well being of the person and work environment. Mindfulness has even been proven to increase empathy, self-control, concentration, mental clarity and objectivity.
This interactive session explains mindfulness techniques and the value they add to the professional and personal life experiences. In doing this, the workshop covers case studies of how mindfulness is being implemented by small and large organizations.
- Explore life-experiences through mindful connectivity by enriching five senses
- Learn evidence based findings on mindfulness’ positive affects on life
- Gather information to personally practice mindfulness and share with friends and colleagues.
