Mindfulness has been gaining popularity in workplaces such as Google, Aetna and SAP with courses for employees. There is a link between wellbeing and productivity as it can be challenge juggling the demands of work and family. The constant thinking and doing could compromise our mental health, eventually our body, and work performance.
Join us for a taster workshop on Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed by the University of Oxford. MBCT is designed to help people who are experiencing stress, anxiety, burnout, depression or chronic pain. The intention is to discover wellbeing, and instead of avoiding the elephant in the room, we develop resilience to tackle challenges. MBCT combines cognitive therapy techniques, breathing and awareness practices, and universal values of kindness, non-judgement and curiosity to cultivate a new relationship with our mind and body. This workshop is suitable for the general public including those who are simply curious about mindfulness or are looking to deepen their practise.
WHAT WILL WE LEARN
The two-hour workshop aims to give a taster on how to:
- step out of automatic pilot and dencetre to take an alternative perspective
- regulate our emotions and tap into our inner wisdom for decision-making
- regulate our attention to stay focused and let creativity flourish
- respond skillfully to triggers, troubling thoughts, emotions and physical pain
- practise self-care at any time and place
