Friday mornings at 9:00-11:00 AM via Zoom
4 Sessions: June 3, 10, 24 and July 1, 2022
Ken Saxon and Jennifer Reitz are offering a four-session program series “Mindful Presence” on Zoom this coming June, and you are invited to join them for the journey. We’ve been through so much challenge and disruption in the past few years. As a leader and person, might this be a good time to reconnect with and prioritize yourself? Might investing in the qualities of your own presence help you to better support all those who rely on you?
What is this “Mindful Presence” program?
This program will support participants to lead their lives and their work with greater intentionality and presence, and to explore practices to cultivate this. In and between these four sessions, participants will engage in:
- practices that cultivate mindfulness, including different types of meditation
- mindful communications, including cultivating presence and listening skills
- exploration on relevant themes fundamental to mindful presence
- design (or re-design) of practices that can can help one live and lead with greater intentionality
- inspiration from peers also committed to growing in self-awareness and intentionality
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, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.
Mindfulness and self-reflection 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 mind is, our life becomes – so it is critical for each of us to attend to the qualities of our mind.
