“Mindful Awareness Practice for a Coaching Culture”

“An opportunity to learn, experience, and understand what
mindfulness is and how to develop it.”

These days we hear a lot about this thing called “mindfulness” and how beneficial it can be for our well-being and happiness. It’s almost too easy for us to file this advice under the category of “things I know I should be doing” or “things I’ll someday get around to” or “things I wish I were better at”.

The good news is that mindfulness practice, rather than being some aspirational quality we hope to acquire in some distant future, is a set of skills we can all develop right in the midst of our busy lives. We can start (or restart) this practice at any time, using everyday experience in interaction with others, as well as when alone.

In everyday situations, mindfulness supports us in these fundamental competencies:

  • Establishing trust and connection with others
  • Living with presence – responding creatively and whole-heartedly rather than automatically reacting
  • Listening deeply to ourselves and others
  • Opening to awareness that encourages deep insight and learning for ourselves and others: clients, colleagues, family, and friends.

In this experiential, interactive workshop on mindful awareness practice we will explore:

  • Practices you can begin to use right away in conversation with others: at work or at home
  • Key concepts about the mind that will help you understand your experience better and support you in coaching yourself to develop these skills*
  • Highlights from research in the neuroscience and cognitive science fields that help to explain how mindfulness practice impacts our physiology and internal experience.
  • An introduction to mindfulness meditation**

*After you register for the workshop, you will receive an email with some pre-reading about these concepts.

**Following the workshop, you will receive an email with links to free, brief guided meditations you can begin to use right away.
