Mindfulness at Work is a self-paced, experiential course designed to teach core mindfulness skills while also exploring specific applications to the workplace setting. The course explores key mindfulness traits and how they relate to essential workplace skills, such as presence, emotional regulation, resilience, cognitive flexibility, and communication, all of which are critical skills for thriving at work. By exploring these topics from the perspective of the workplace, participants will gain an understanding of how to apply evidence-based techniques to help them succeed on the job. This course is 6 weeks in length, with weekly course work taking 30-45 minutes per week to complete, and formal home practice of 15 minutes per day.

Prior to registration, please review the orientation for this class.
