Workplace Mindfulness provides training in the skillful use of mindfulness tools and methods that can be used to address the most difficult circumstances in your professional or personal life. When you are feeling highly stressed, overwhelmed, distracted, or overcome with doubts, mindfulness practice reveals a fresh perspective that invites resourcefulness and clarity. Learning to "hold one's seat" cultivates steadiness--even in the midst of chaos. You are less affected by second-guesses, self-criticism, and hesitation, and are better able to move forward with confidence and integrity when action is required.
