These workshops involve an experiential introduction to a variety of mindfulness meditation practices. The duration of the workshops can be adjusted to meet the needs of your organisation i.e. one hour, two hours, half day or a full day. They are an ideal way to offer employees a taste of what a mindfulness course at work would entail, as described below.
