Individual/Small Group Workshop Mindfulness & Wellbeing

Mindfulness workshops are delivered in traditional group format as participants can benefit from getting support from others who share their experiences.  Group process provide energy and understanding from others as participants learn how to integrate the practice of mindfulness into their daily lives.  However, mindfulness workshops can be offered on a one-to-one basis for individuals who may not be available for the standard group size setting due to schedule conflicts or who prefer smaller group setting (maximum 2 - 6).  It is tailored to suit your schedule and specific needs.  It is accessible to all people and no prior experience in meditational practice or yoga is required.

 

Mindfulness-based skills have become increasingly popular for wellbeing, health, clarity of thought, and work-life balance.  People from all walks of life attend our workshops as this self-management skills are used in a broad variety of settings such as community, workplace, business, management, healthcare, sports, educational, and psychology.  Reasons for attending are as diverse as enhancing quality-of-life, improving interpersonal relationship, addressing stress and anxiety, mindful leadership, finding peace, and parenting wisely.    The practice of mindfulness help us find clarity of mind, by allowing us to step away from habitual, reactive behaviours and respond skilfully rather than on auto-pilot.

 

The workshop is an interactive and hands-on session introducing participant/s to guided mindfulness practices, and scientific research on mindfulness.  In this session, you will learn what mindfulness can offer and explore how it can help you relate differently to your stressors.  It encourages participant/s to apply simple and realistic mindfulness activities into their everyday life to support wellbeing at work and at home.
