Grow the human first. Leadership follows.


Content of the WEBINAR

In this 6 weeks course we will cover the following topics: 

  • Introduction to Mindfulness: What is mindfulness and what are its scientifically proven benefits? 
  • Mindfulness of the Body:  We live disconnected from our bodies, mostly because we tend to think that our minds can out-think and out-will our bodies. In reality, our thoughts and emotions live in our bodies. It is important to re-establish a connection with the body by
    noticing sensations and emotions both pleasant and unpleasant. 
  • Mindfulness of Emotions: Emotions are normal and necessary, and to not be feared. Emotional awareness can be empowering, helping us separate how we feel from who we are and thereby finding greater balance and freedom.
  • Being with what is difficult: Unpleasant feelings, sensations, thoughts, or memories are common things we all must face when learning or practicing mindfulness. They are part of our full human experience, and can be safely welcomed, noticed, and let go as we learn to be open to the present moment. The open awareness of mindfulness means we meet the unpleasant or difficult without evaluating or judging. 
  • Loving kindness and compassion: The focus is to turn toward an intentional calling up of good will, kindness, generosity, and compassion. Beginning with themselves, we will practice offering loving kindness and compassion in response to self-criticisms. The goal is not to eliminate self-critical thoughts, but to allow to acknowledge them without avoidance, then meet them with loving kindness. 
  • Mindfulness of Communication and Leadership: Mindful awareness and practices are designed to extend beyond the individual and into relationships and interactions with others. We can bring mindfulness to how we relate, converse, and help others. 
  • Resilience: We explore resilience not as a “toughening up” to take on difficulty like a battle, but as a mindset that helps us maintain calm, balance, clarity, and kindness in
    the face of challenges. Strength and fortitude are inner resources that allow us to offer compassion. 
  • Mindfulness for Anxiety: Open awareness of the present can help relieve us from anxiety’s obsession with the future, and the racing, spinning feelings that accompany it. Our goals in this session include understanding anxiety, noticing how it manifests in sensations, emotions, and thoughts, and practicing several different ways to gently and compassionately manage it. 
  • Mindfulness for Work: Too often, we work with a sense of black-and-white thinking about right and wrong, good and bad, powerful and powerless—all this can lead to judgement rather than mindful awareness of the present. The focus in this session is how we relate to others in their particular work role. 
  • Mindfulness moving forward: we reflect on the future of the mindfulness practices. The goal is to carry forward the skills, techniques, stamina, and eagerness to meditate daily
    and use mindfulness techniques when we encounter stress or conflict.
