This orientation session is an opportunity to learn more about the Mindfulness@Work Six-Week program, and have an opportunity to register for the programs beginning in April 2015.

Mindfulness@Work is an educational program modelling off Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is an evidence-based training that reduces stress, cultivates physical & mental health and promotes wellbeing. Mindfulness is a basic human quality, a way of learning how to pay wise attention to whatever is happening in your life. The practice of mindfulness reduces reactivity and promotes greater connection inwardly and outwardly. Mindfulness@Work specifically focuses on integrating the practice of mindfulness in the workplace to promote effectiveness, teamwork, and communication.
