Mindfulness for wellbeing and peak performance
CANCELLED: Mindfulness for wellbeing and peak performance
Join 19 participants and experience high-quality learning
Stress, inattention and distraction are becoming ubiquitous in the modern world and the popularity of mindfulness can be looked upon as an antidote to modern life. It can be described as both a form of meditation and a way of living. Although it is a generic skill it has an infinite number of applications. Being able to effectively engage attention in a mindful way is a pre-requisite for virtually anything else we want to do and for that reason is the single most important life-skill we ever learn. This practical and experiential workshop will explore the science, philosophy and practice of mindfulness across a wide variety of applications including managing personal stress, dealing with vicarious stress, coping with workload, and enhancing mental and physical health.
You will benefit by
- Understanding the relationship between mindfulness, stress, performance and physical wellbeing
- Applying the formal and informal practices of mindfulness to personal and professional life
- Ability to apply mindfulness in order to enhance performance, executive functioning, emotional intelligence and communication
