Heart at Work
good for business, people & communities

Based on current trends, Americans on average will spend more than 90,000 hours of their lives working. As many people and employers increasingly appreciate, that is too many hours to take for granted.

How can mindfulness can help?

Mindfulness is a state of being that brings awareness and heart to all facets of experience. It enables us to meet life (including working life) with wisdom, care and discernment.

Mindfulness helps us to stress less, connect more. It strengthens our presence. We increase our capacity to contribute in meaningful ways, in a sustainable manner. The quality of our attention improves. Difficult conversations become less difficult. We foster a greater sense of buoyancy, allowing us respond to challenging tasks, situations and people with more skill, ease and compassion. This is good for business, good for people, good for communities.
