Unlocking the Mind – Intro Session
society in this direction through coaching and workshops such as this one. This workshop continuously moves from the comfort zone of a meditation room to the reality of what we face every day in our work and personal lives – making it actionable.
A key point that resonated with me is that there is no one size fits all for how to execute a form of meditation. It does, however, take a leap of faith to give this a try. Not everyone will get on board, but for those who hold back, they are missing an opportunity to grow. As part marketer, part artist, I do get great opportunities to meditate in my walks on the beach, nighttime hours creating in my studio, and days in the kitchen pulling together all the pieces of a dinner party. I also highly value my yoga practice several times a week. In this session, I was glad to see a roomful of professionals who were willing to put aside their normal end of day rush home through traffic and spend an hour reflecting on how to put the right brain in full gear!
In a world that carries work in our “pocket”, it’s nearly impossible to take negative emotions, regardless of where they originated, out of the workplace. Re-framing our actions, reactions, and interactions requires a conscious effort. This is the core of the Hollister Institute “Unlocking the Mind” workshop.
