We have found that the most successful workplace mindfulness and resiliency programming is encouraged and modeled from the top down. A day of mindfulness and wellness can cultivate deeper personal and professional satisfaction for associates, executives, and/or leaders. During a half-day or full-day retreat, participants will be introduced to a variety of topics focused on self-care, stress management, mindfulness, and mindful leadership. Retreats are informational but also heavily experiential with sustained periods of practice and relaxation techniques. Participants can expect the same scientific rigor and explanations provided in our weekly courses along with additional relaxation practices, light mindful movement, and mindful eating practices over shared healthy meals.
What separates us from other companies is our team. Combined with over 50 years of experience, we bring doctoral-level education and research methods to elevate our programs.
