D4: Mindfulness | The Foundation for Healthy Workplaces
The workshop will examine how Mindfulness contributes to mental wellness in the workplace.  With an origin in ancient traditions, mindfulness is now gaining momentum as a strategy to promote wellness in a variety of contexts. Mindfulness invites those who practice it to change their relationship to their situation.  A growing body of research has shown that mindfulness is helpful for parenting, mental health disorders, reducing interpersonal violence, and equipping people with tools to live a peaceful and joyful life.  Mindfulness has also been shown to help people succeed in the workplace through building better relationships, improving communication and reducing conflict and stress.  After attending this interactive workshop, participants will engage in mindfulness practice and learn how mindfulness can promote wellness in their workplace.
