Mindfulness @Work™ 8-Week Worksite Program
The Mindfulness @Work™
program is an eight-week course designed to teach participants mindfulness skills that serve to enhance attention, focused concentration, productivity, communication and self care. This program is based on the systematic, intensive training program in mindfulness meditation: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
Participants are invited to explore the application of mindfulness practice at work and in everyday life. The curriculum is embedded within the context of the emergent field of mind/body medicine, and aims to develop habits and coping skills that can be effectively utilized in daily life through the systematic training of the mind via the direct cultivation of mindfulness. Methods include the learning and refining of a range of self-regulatory skills aimed at increasing awareness of mind/body experiences related to feelings of health and well-being, stress reactivity, coping, and overall sense of self and self-in-relationship to others. Through a sustained process of self-development that includes daily practice assignments, program participants will learn to mobilize their inner resources for learning, growing, healing, and for taking care of themselves by making positive changes in health attitudes and behaviors and integrating these capacities and skills into the workplace.
In summary, this program’s primary aim is the development of one’s inherent, internal resources and acquired skills that can be flexibly applied in everyday life … reaching far beyond the completion of this eight-week program.
The program format is as follows: An orientation (1.5 hour), 8 (2 hour) weekly classes, and an All Day (6 hour) Class. Mindfulness @Work™ program participants report the following:
- 26.5% increase in acting with awareness
