Mindfulness at Work Training – What the research shows?

Studies at Harvard, have shown that after just eight weeks of mindfulness training there is a significant increase in brain grey matter concentration in areas associated with sustained attention, emotional regulation and perspective taking. Mindfulness Training also increases activity in the left prefrontal cortex – a predictor of happiness and well-being as well as boosting the immune response.

The training has been conclusively proven to help with stress, anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours and has positive impacts on like hypertension, heart disease and chronic pain. In addition, Mindfulness Training improves emotional intelligence skills including self / social awareness and more awareness of environment.

The facilitator – Joanne O’Malley has an open and authentic teaching approach which fosters enquiry and participation among participants. This builds self-reliance and the practice allows new insights to arise. When people realise their self-imposed limits, they have an opportunity to loosen negative patterns and develop new habits. In a safe environment, where sensitive issues can be addressed openly, people take responsibility for their own thinking/feeling/behaviour and master their own development.

How Mindfulness at Work translates to work environment?

Today, the increased external pressure workers face on a day to day basis as a result of an ‘always on’, information overloaded environment requires a new way of working. People need to be able to manage their mind states and develop new skills so they can consciously choose where and how attention is placed.

Mindfulness invites participants to ‘train the mind’ just as athletes ‘builds muscle’ and ‘train the body’. Being effective isn’t about ‘getting it all done’ or ‘rushing around non-stop in a distracted overwhelmed kind of way’ but being HERE, balanced and attuned to deep intelligence and wisdom.
