Wearing Well-being in the Workplace – two part series

Safe in Self - Mindfulness for Workplace Well-being

Mindfulness is defined as “the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment , and non-judgementally to things as they are” (Williams et al., 2007, p. 47).  Being of Buddhist origin, it was introduced into the Western world in late 1970s.  Programs to train this skill were offered initially in healthcare because mindfulness empowered individuals to sustain quality of life when dealing with life’s ‘catastrophes’ inherent in human existence.  Since then and a few decades of scientific inquiry into benefits of mindfulness has produced a robust body of empirical evidence in neuroscience and psychology.  As a result mindfulness became a hot topic in diverse contexts, including the corporate world.  Organisations and individuals can harness the power of mindfulness to increase well-being in the workplace.  In this interactive and practical workshop we will explore major facets of mindfulness: attention regulation, body awareness, emotion regulation and change in perspective on the self. 

We are privileged to have Dr Olga Muzychenko as our facilitator this month.  Olga came across mindfulness a few years ago through her research.  Upon exploring this concept in more depth she started practicing mindfulness to improve the quality of her professional and personal life.  Satisfied with an outcome, in 2013 she embarked on professional training in mindfulness-based interventions and will complete Level 1 Certificate program by the end of 2015.
