How Mindfulness can help your business
Reduced costs of staff absenteeism and turnover
Better employer/employee and client relationships
Increased resilience in individuals recovering from negative mental states
Better concentration, memory and learning skills
Greater job satisfaction
Mindfulness is a simple but very powerful practice of training to focus attention, which can have wide-ranging benefits, valuable to individual employees and organisations alike. Research has shown it to be very effective in reducing stress and anxiety.
Numerous studies have shown that through mindfulness training, individuals learn to better manage their ways of being in the world, which has particular business benefits and results in a return on any initial investment made in the training.
Investing in Mindfulness training can reduce the costs of absenteeism associated with stress-related conditions, as well as improving employee retention, satisfaction, and overall engagement.
“Mindfulness promises a great number of desirable benefits, and is based on much more solid research than many competing ideas on how to change people.”
Courses For Businesses
The 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course is the gold standard. It was created to promote the progressive development of awareness of the present moment.
The course involves both psycho educational and experiential components that can benefit both individuals and organisations.
Following any of the courses, we can organise follow up groups to sustain lessons learnt during the previous sessions.

Jon Kabat-Zinn’s original Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme
Today Mindfulness courses and workshops have been developed from Jon Kabat-Zinn’s original Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, which was developed to help people suffering with chronic physical pain and long-term medical conditions. It included meditation techniques to help participants become more aware of their experience in the present moment, by tuning into moment-to-moment changes in the mind and the body.
