Leading From Within’s founder, Ken Saxon, is offering a four-session series on “Mindful Living” this fall, and you are invited to join him for the journey. We’ve been through so much challenge and disruption in the past few years. Is this a good time to reconnect with yourself and invest in your wellness, your happiness and your state of mind?
What is this Mindful Living program?
This Mindful Living program will support participants to lead their lives with greater intentionality and to cultivate practices to better support those intentions.
In these four sessions, participants will engage in:
- practices that cultivate mindfulness, including different types of meditation
- mindful communications skills, including cultivating their listening skills
- reflection on themes important to them
- designing (or re-designing) practices that can support them to live with greater intentionality
- getting to know and be inspired by others also committed to self-improvement
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the moment-by-moment process of non-judgmentally observing one’s physical, mental and emotional experiences. Put simply, the practicing of mindfulness is attention training. Mindfulness has increasing levels of scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention and focus, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.
Among the many components of its curriculum for nonprofit leaders, Leading From Within (LFW) has always stressed mindfulness and self-reflection – in leadership, in communication, and in self-management. LFW uses mindfulness to support leaders to bring their most vibrant and effective presence to the many challenges inherent in leadership roles, and to guide their careers and their lives with greater intentionality and sustainability. As our minds are, our life becomes – so it is critical for each of us to attend to the quality of our minds.
