We are thrilled to share that we have launched a BRAND NEW course in mindfulness for workplaces, in partnership with Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist Michelle Lee.
The Mindful Leader Course is an 8-week course that will help individuals decrease stress and anxiety while building self-reliance and access to inner calm. This course consists of a weekly class that introduces a new pillar of mindfulness. Each class builds upon the one before, with the intention to strengthen your mindfulness muscle and confidence.
Participants then have brief daily mindfulness practices to complete in order to develop techniques and skills to be resilient in their day-to-day. This includes practicing many forms of meditation, gentle mindful movement, self-reflection and the study of mindful outlooks.
Mindfulness is the practice of being present in our actions and interactions. Meditation is one of the pillars of mindfulness, as it builds self-awareness and responsibility.
Meditation has been found to provide a number of benefits for reducing anxiety, depression (1), improving sleep (2), as well as improving certain stress related conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (3). For examples, after an 8 week meditation program, employees at Google and Roche reported a 46% reduction in depression and a 31% reduction in anxiety (4). Research by Headspace also found that 4 weeks of meditation practice improved focus by 14% and reduced mind wandering by 22%.
