One of the biggest outcomes for me was the awareness that I could perform these techniques aligned to my work, they weren’t just something to do once work was finished (e.g. the permission to pause – that was huge).

– CTI Biopharma, Program Participant

Of all the things our organization has focused on this year with regard to mental health, this was hands down the best choice they could have made. The program truly was about doing something for yourself. Thank you so very much for coming to us with your warmth and generosity. It was exactly what I needed.

– Oregon School District Program Participant

The feedback has been amazing. We have our leadership team meeting directly after the Tuesday sessions, and this week everyone came so pumped and hopeful. Everyone who wasn’t able to attend was jealous! They think this could be life-changing for our team. Wow!

– ADIDAS Leader + Program Participant

I notice that when I incorporate practice and pause moments during my day in between tasks that I feel more energized and have significantly less burnout.

– Anonymous Program Participant

As someone who has been to many meditation classes, I enjoyed how down-to-earth the presenters were. Topics were realistic, effective, and honest; not cheesy, spiritual, or filled with the smell of incense (no offense). I also loved how open they were to questions, and all of their slideshow visuals. This sort of support is very valuable.

– PAE Engineers, Program Participant

As a result of the 6-week program, I am more friendly and forgiving toward myself and have the ability to self-soothe more quickly when I feel my stress and anxiety levels rising. I feel much more equanimous, sovereign, and free.

– Southern New Hampshire University, Program Participant

I found the Viktor Frankl quote "Between stimulus and response"... particularly relevant and have already shared it with my entire team in our huddle and have shared it with several others; friends, family, and colleagues.

– U.S. BANK Discovery Workshop Participant

This has changed my life. I am typically very anxious, disconnected, forget to put myself first, operate on auto-pilot, and am constantly in strife. This program has changed all of this for the better.

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.

While our method and curriculum are uniquely ours, these teachings are here by the generosity and grace of many teachers, mentors, and researchers who came before us. We are deeply grateful and humbled to draw from this collective wisdom and to be a part of the modern mindfulness movement.
