Delivered through the Dorset Training Academy, this 3-hour course is designed to provide staff with the opportunity to explore the benefits and practices of mindfulness and meditation in a work based setting.

 

Research indicates that the practices of mindfulness and meditation have a wide range of positive effects on both physical and mental wellbeing.  The NHS describes mindfulness as an ‘evidence-based’ intervention for mental health.  The increased cognitive performance and emotional regulation provided by mindfulness and meditation have become widely recognised as essential tools for the workplace.

In a world where stress has become the number one challenge, not just to our health, but to the bottom line profit, these practices are now being integrated routinely into the working day by blue-chip companies from Google, Apple, Sony, and Ikea through to the Department of Health.

Investing in staff wellbeing is no longer considered a luxury but a fundamental of good business practice, with far-reaching rewards at both the business and personal level.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the differences between mindfulness and meditation practices.
  • State 3 positive effects of mindfulness and meditation on the body.
  • State 3 changes in brain activity resulting from mindfulness and meditation.
  • Practice and evaluate mindfulness and meditation techniques.
  • Create a personal mindfulness and meditation action plan.

The short 3 hour course will be delivered at the Cranford Avenue College site. Free parking is available and refreshments will be provided.  Training can be delivered on site to meet business needs, please contact us to discuss a pre-course assessment of your premises.

A maximum of 12 students are allowed on all training sessions and there is no exam at the end of the course. Weymouth College certificates will be distributed within 10 working days of the end of the course.
