Navigating Uncertainty

Right now, employees are facing unprecedented levels of uncertainty, stress, and anxiety (in both their personal and professional lives). Mindfulness training empowers employees with practical, useful tools and exercises to reduce stress, skillfully work with uncertainty, tend to their nervous systems, and shift their mindset around current circumstances in ways that significantly enhance their wellbeing.

Cultivating Inner Resources

Many companies are turning to mindfulness because it's one of the most effective tools to help employees proactively take care of their mental health. Mindfulness training helps employees cultivate their inner resources for wellness, use their mental energy more wisely, and self-regulate difficult thoughts or emotions anytime, not just during a meditation session. Each of our trainings provides an opportunity for employees to relax and recharge, and also leaves them equipped to bring mindfulness directly into their daily routines.

Building Resilience

Just like learning to play a sport or an instrument, research shows that resilience is a skill that can be developed through consistent practice. Ongoing mindfulness training helps employees better respond to stressful situations, find greater work/life balance to prevent burnout, and develop a reservoir of inner strengths, all of which build resilience. In the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn, "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."  Waves in the modern workplace are inevitable, but with mindfulness, employees have skills to navigate the ups and downs in a way that yields long-term, positive habit change in both their mental and physical health.

Pause Method

The Pause Method trains leaders to shift out of autopilot and into leadership presence by developing four core qualities: calm, clarity, creativity, and connection.

 

Through evidence-based programs and live human connection, our method empowers your people with fundamental skills they can tap into anytime, anywhere to work smarter, feel better, and show up as their best selves.

Our method synthesizes insights from three primary sources into a simple, nonreligious approach to training the mind.

Sciences such as neurochemistry and experimental psychology that deal with the structure and function of the nervous system and brain.

NEUROSCIENCE

The scientific study of human flourishing: the strengths and virtues that enable individuals, communities and organizations to thrive.

POSITIVE

PSYCHOLOGY

Contemplative traditions that expand self-awareness, 

deepen the ways we relate to the world, and enable personal transformation.
