MINDFULNESS COURSES FOR WORK

Workplace Mindfulness Training (WMT) course is specifically designed for the workplace. The Wordplace Mindfulness Training course was developed by The Mindfulness Exchange, an offshoot from The Oxford Mindfulness Centre. The course has been adapted from the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course (MBCT) developed at Oxford University by Mark Williams.

This course is designed for the workplace setting and has an emphasis on developing skills to manage our minds in the modern demanding workplace. We as experienced educationalists can tailor and adapt the course to suit your business case.

Evidence has shown that Mindfulness training in the workplace can:

Improve employee wellbeing

Develop leadership capability and emotional intelligance

Reduce stress and anxiety

Decrease negative mental activity

Improve emotional regulation

Significantly reduce burnout

COURSE CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn a working definition of Mindfulness, an explanation of what it is and what it is not. A discussion on how we deliver mindfulness and a presentation of the scientific evidence (via video) for its effectiveness in the professional setting. The participants are then introduced to several techniques used to train our minds in mindfulness. They will be taught how to adapt these mindfulness techniques to their own life with a view to developing mindfulness as a way of life in the workplace and at home. A course text book with reading and exercises to practice following each session promotes consolidating the learning.

COURSE CONTENT

Listed below is general course content, but this can be tailored to suit the needs of the organisation. So, for example, if the prevailing problem is recognised as stress related more focus will be put on the issue concerning the organisation.

  • An Introduction to Mindfulness – what it is and what it is not, view the evidence.
  • To be able to apply Mindfulness techniques so that they can experience  ‘being in the moment’ and aim towards a more mindful way of life.
  • To learn to Meditate and settle the mind.
  • To experience and build the connection between body and mind.

  • To have practical tools to integrate Mindfulness into everyday life.
60 and 90 MINUTE SESSIONS

Courses  are generally  offered as 60 minute or 90 minute sessions. They can be held as breakfast meetings, lunch or after work sessions, to suit the organisation.

  • The course is usually delivered in 60 minutes or 90 minutes.
  • Full Day or Part Day Courses with the same content  can be created if this fits with the needs of the organisation
