Course Content

                   ABOUT THE PROGRAM:     This mindfulness program introduces participants to workplace-focused mindfulness training, based on the research-based 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. Through key mindfulness practices, group discussions and inquiry into experiences, participants will learn foundational mindfulness skills and techniques that can be easily incorporated into their unique workplace setting to improve work engagement and career sustainability.     Learning themes covered in the program include:   
- Noticing the autopilot mind and its impact on work tasks and performance; safeguarding the mind against distractions and emotional reactivity 
- Training for attentional flexibility for greater focus and increased performance at work; improving working memory amidst the incessant flow of tasks and communications at the workplace 
- Developing metacognitive skills for greater awareness of thoughts and feelings; recognizing how negative rumination decreases work productivity 
- Learning about how stress affects work performance; managing stress reactivity for clarity of mind and better decision-making 
- Increasing emotional intelligence through self-awareness and self-regulation 
- Building resilience in moving towards rather than withdrawing from uncomfortable experiences at work; shifting towards the approach system for greater resourcefulness and problem-solving skills 
- Managing conflicts or challenging communications and improving interpersonal relationships in the workplace     This program is suitable for working adults (aged 18 and above) from all backgrounds, work levels and positions, as well as job capacities.     This program consists of eight weekly sessions (about 
2.5 hours per session) as well as an all-day retreat, and is taught by an approved facilitator in a group setting. Class sizes are kept small (around 12-15) to maximize the effectiveness of facilitation and group learning.     Mindfulness techniques taught in the program include formal and informal practices of observing our body, breath and thoughts, as well as gentle stretching movements. The learning process also includes group discussions and some didactic teaching, all of which are exceptionally important to the participant's learning in the program.    Mindfulness in the program is taught in a safe environment emphasizing self-care and the cultivation of moment-to-moment awareness, a non-striving attitude, non-judgmental acceptance, as well as self-compassion.      The program is designed to encourage active participation and commitment to practice, and so participants are required to follow up on the home practice assigned to them each week.    Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion.
