Optimising Your Organisation With Neuroscience & Mindfulness
Serving the entire Caribbean region, the Caribbean Mindfulness Institute provides in-person and online, customisable, science-based mindfulness training to help you create happier, more productive, and more resilient workspaces. Presentations can be one hour, two hours, half day, full day, or two days. Workshops and keynotes can be tailored to suit your organisation’s specific needs.
Pervasive employee stress can cripple an organisations ability to grow, thrive, and respond in the face of economic and global challenges. Mindfulness in the workplace can be a powerful force for collaboration, resilience, performance, and organisational growth by:
• Equipping individuals with emotional intelligence and self-awareness;
• Enabling people to recognize the signs of stress and respond more effectively;
• Helping individuals develop discernment between reacting impulsively and responding wisely;
• Supporting a culture where workplace safety, collaboration, and interpersonal-relationships are valued.
The Caribbean Mindfulness Institute was established in 2017, and provides workplace training and public workshops on mindfulness and meditation to help people beat stress and feel their best. To date, we have trained over 1,600 West Indians in the science and practice of mindfulness and have worked with over 25 organisations locally.
If you are interested in having a workshop or presentation at your organisation or event, please let us know some basic details about what you’d like and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
