We offer mindful meditation classes for 30, 45, and 60 minutes in length. We offer speaker sessions ranging from 15 minutes to 90 minutes in length. Our training programs last anywhere from 90 minutes in a single session to 12 hours over multiple sessions. Any introduction to mindfulness, no matter how short, can shift perspective and give the audience new tools for a new way of thinking and being. Research shows that mindfulness meditation is most impactful for individuals and organizations when it is reinforced on a regular basis. We recommend organizations start with a series of speaker sessions supported by weekly or biweekly office mindful meditation classes.
Mindfulness meditation can be practiced in regular office chairs, and that option is usually most comfortable for beginners. (Plus, no outfit change is required!) The most important thing is to find an enclosed, mostly quiet space for practice. A standard conference room works well.
