Mindfulness for Organisations

We live in an era where many workers feel increasing levels of stress and anxiety. Work places can be stressful, challenging and constantly changing uncertain environments. Mindfulness can be a way of provide employees with a new set of skills and tools to navigate the modern working life.

 

At the New Forest Mindfulness Centre, we tailor our programmes for organisations to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for a single 'taster' training session, a longer course or help for a particular individual.  To find out more please do get in touch.

What we Offer

Our training days provide an introduction to the theory and practice of mindfulness, as well as the research literature / evidence base relevant to your particular profession.

The day would include the opportunity to experience some of the fundamental practices, as well as the opportunity for participants to further explore through discussion with the facilitators what they noticed and learnt from these. This is particularly important because learning about mindfulness is like any other skill it needs to be practiced and tried out in order to fully experience it and learn from it.

 

A presentation could also be included, about the evidence base around mindfulness for pain, stress and anxiety, as well as in regard to the workplace and / or any other areas deemed appropriate for the participant group.

 

HALF DAY SESSION

This would allow for a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation, which might be sufficient in itself for participants to decide whether they are interested enough to embark upon a longer course.

FULL DAY SESSIONS 

This will allow for going a little deeper into the theory and practice of mindfulness in relation to participants own experiences and their professional practice. It would also allow for more time to cover some of the relevant research literature.

8-WEEK COURSE 

A complete introduction to the practice of mindfulness meditation and personal experience of how bringing this skill into everyday life may enhance mental and physical wellbeing, creativity and productivity.
