      Course Information 

      The Mindful@Work program was developed to mitigate the challenges and stresses of the modern workplace. The curriculum draws from the scientific expertise and collaborated works of a variety of internationally-respected leaders, including neuroscientist Dr.Richard Davidson, psychologist Daniel Goleman and Design Thinking leader, Peter Block. The collective insights of these forward-thinkers coupled with our experience in emotional intelligence in education come together to create the deeply textured, well rounded Mindful@Work curriculum. Based on neuroscience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness, our qualified instructors teach tools to help individuals better manage stress, cope with anxiety, increase self-esteem, and foster deeper connections both in and out of the workplace.

      "I particularly enjoyed how the space was held by the facilitators, not only did I always feel welcomed and accepted, I also learned a lot about HOW to hold space. Thank you all so much, I’ve learned so much from and with you. I feel sure that these are practices and mindsets that I will call on for the rest of my life. Thank you for what you do, who you are, and how you consistently affirm us!" - Studio [Y] Particpant, Toronto Canada
