Your program costs support the mindfulness in education movement by bringing low-cost Mindful Schools visits to local classrooms.
Introductory visit: 1-2 hours. This initial visit is an introduction to the practice and theory of mindfulness, allowing staff to gain an understanding of why mindfulness is important and the impact of toxic stress on mental and physical health. Participants will be guided in a few short breathing, movement and awareness practices that they will be able to use immediately to reduce stress during the workday. $400
Half-day visit: Up to 3 hours that can be offered as one longer stress-reduction workshop for the whole staff (up to 30 participants); or as 3 hour-long sessions to smaller groups of staff members (between 8-15 participants). $750
Day-long in-house retreat: Give your staff the gift of mindfulness with this day-long opportunity to reset the nervous system, learn stress-management techniques, release stored tension, improve communication, enhance focused attention and decision-making skills, understand stress in the brain, and learn how to rope in the amygdala and engage the pre-frontal cortex for optimal performance. $1200
Mindful Workplace Series: A series of three to six visits designed to teach the main foundations of the practice of mindfulness and the benefits of reducing stress at work. Sessions will include breath awareness, yoga and movement practices, focused attention, guided relaxation, mindful communication, coping with challenging people and situations, and hands-on STOP practices that can be incorporated into the workday. $500/visit - minimum 3 sessions
Workplace Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR): The 8-week class created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMass Medical Center, and used in medical settings across the country and internationally, clinically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, reduce depression and insomnia, and effective in treating addictions, maladaptive behavior patterns, ADD, and a wide array of other medical conditions. We recommend that you offer this program as Professional Development for interested staff and believe that you will notice improved morale, better focus and attention, and a sense of "contagious ease", positivity, productivity, and possibility among those who have taken the program. The course consists of 8 weekly meetings, 2 hours in length, as well as a commitment to daily home practice and can be offered to groups of 8-15 people. $5000
