What is Mindfulness?
The research about Mindfulness is plentiful. Studies show that regularly practicing mindfulness contributes to personal health, happiness, resiliency and effectiveness. When we are ‘present’ and in this moment (i.e. Mindful), we can respond and deal with whatever is happening; instead of reacting or worrying about what has happened or might happen.
The practice of Mindfulness is cultivated and enhanced through meditation, of which there are numerous forms. During meditation there is an opportunity to detach from everyday concerns, worries and stresses, to give ourselves time to stop, breathe, regroup and recharge.
When we regularly meditate we feel calmer, more at ease, have peace of mind and find greater inner balance. More about the practice of meditation here
Our classes are designed to introduce the principles of Mindfulness and meditation. They include time for group discussion, exploration as well as guided meditation practices. We share hands-on, easy to use tools and techniques to help incorporate mindfulness into our personal and professional lives. These classes are for JCI employees who are generally healthy, and who would like to learn to manage stress, their emotions, thoughts and body more skillfully.
The tailored meditation and relaxation experience will be recorded and a copy will be sent as a downloadable email link the following day. This recording when used, will help augment the class and facilitate continued practice at home/in the office/while traveling.
