Stress, inattention, multitasking and haste are becoming ubiquitous in the modern world and they come at a significant cost in terms of poor mental and physical health, inefficiency, errors and poor communication. The popularity of mindfulness can be looked upon as an antidote to modern life. Mindfulness can be described as both a form of meditation and a way of living and although it is a generic skill it has an infinite number of applications. This interactive and experiential workshop will explore the science, philosophy and practice of mindfulness across a wide variety of applications including managing stress, coping with workload, enhancing mental and physical health, and fostering quality relationships.
