Watch this video…..here are some of the benefits!
The first is that you have an opportunity to listen to Jon Kabat-Zinn, a world renowned mindfulness expert, discuss how mindfulness can be of help in a work environment. He suggests that a personal practice of mindfulness will “tune you up and in” for the workday, just like a member of an orchestra tunes his/her instrument before playing.
Secondly, he discusses the value of mindfulness for creativity, an absolute essential capacity for any individual and/or organization to respond effectively to change.
Thirdly, he outlines the case that mindfulness is a human capacity that can reveal hidden dimensions of potential for knowing ourselves and the world. It enables a person to see the present clearly and objectively, rather than through the lenses of one’s thoughts, opinions, and ideas.
Finally, watch the video to have a first hand experience of the formal practice of mindfulness. It is a first person experience of gaining self knowledge of your mind and being guided by a world renowned expert.
Jon Kabat-Zinn discusses what mindfulness and meditation are really about: presence of heart. This was part of a talk put on by UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center
