How do you bring your passion for mindfulness meditation to your workplace? This was the topic I was honoured to speak about at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center’s ‘Mindfulness & Well-Being at Work’ conference.
Here is my 15 minute talk on Day 1 of the conference where I gave 3 tips for becoming a successful workplace facilitator to a sold-out crowd of over 550 people at the UC Berkeley campus. On Day 2, I taught my Facilitator Training course where over 60 people from organizations around the world learned how to startup meditation in their workplace – getting management support, logistics, best practices, mistakes to avoid, etc. As you might imagine, this was a passionate, compassionate, enthusiastic crowd!
The result? Many students who took my course on Day 2 of the conference have let me know they’ve started up meditation programs at their workplace or in their community. The stories they are telling are heartwarming, full of excitement and joy as they carry out their passions into the world.
The online version of this Facilitator Training course will soon be available. Please watch for an announcement, or better yet, sign up for my newsletter on www.TheCalmMonkey.com.
I’m excited to work with people from around the world and this is my purpose:
‘Creating a mindful world, together’
Wishing you a wonderful day!
