Mindfulness Practitioner Course
Mindfulness and training has already found a valuable place in organizations such as health care and education facilities.Mindfulness practices are gradually increasing in modern organizations as growing research continues to illustrate the benefits that soon become evident in the bottom linelearn to cope better with the pressures we’re under;
recognise the thoughts and judgements we make, often subconsciously, that generate more stress;find balance and a sense of calm.
An understanding of how thoughts and feelings influence our behavior has shown us that our worries about the future and past negatively influences our behavior in the present. Mindfulness counters this process by teaching us to focus on the current moment.
Mindfulness offers tremendous potential in organisational settings, both for individual wellbeing and for transformation of workplace cultures. This course will explore the specific challenges, pressures and rewards of introducing mindfulness in the workplace context. We’ll look at how to design a good intervention for organisations, including a balance of personal mindfulness practice and applied mindfulness in the work setting. We will cover some of the research outcomes and case studies for workplace mindfulness, and learn about aspects of social neuroscience that serve as a context to how mindfulness impacts group settings. You’ll have a chance to explore approaches for planning and scoping mindfulness in the workplace, and cases for approaching senior management. The course will aim to equip you with an understanding of the issues specific to workplace mindfulness, and to strengthen your confidence to work with mindfulness in organisations.
Mindfulness is a way of focusing on the present moment, often practised by paying attention to the breath as a form of meditation. It encourages people to become more aware of their thoughts and feelings so that they can manage them in a different way with more positive outcomes
The specific benefits and application of mindfulness principles and practices are discussed in more detail in the areas of psychotherapy to relieve depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain, as an intervention for behavioral problems such as addictions, and to enhance the wellbeing and performance of kids, teens, and in organizational development.
