Research has demonstrated the extraordinary benefits associated with the practice of meditation for individuals and organizations.  In addition to improving physical and emotional health, it is well accepted that meditation enables healthy individuals to thrive.  Not only does meditation improve attention span and cognitive skills, practicing mindfulness has also been shown to increase an individual’s sense of well-being as well as his or her ability to self-regulate, process stress, reduce reliance on habit, and relate to others.  Research has also demonstrated that employing such individuals is good for business. Linda Lazarus of the Project for Workplace Stress Reduction will lead a 45 minute interactive and experiential mindfulness session which will include a number of practices (including a seated mindfulness meditation, a guided body scan, and tai chi techniques to feel and move energy). After each practice, we will discuss our experience as a group, as well as ways to use these practices at work and at home. Handouts will be provided to help staff start and maintain a regular meditation practice.
