Pause® is the Pacific Northwest's premier modern meditation studio providing critical mental health and resilience support for communities and organizations worldwide during this global crisis.
Through evidence-based, live virtual programs, Pause trainings empower employees to proactively take care of their mental health with practical mindfulness tools to reduce stress and boost resilience. Pause leverages the latest neuroscience, positive psychology, and wellness research into a no-fluff, nonreligious curriculum that is directly applicable to the modern workforce – from executives to entry-level employees.
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.
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.
