Spirituality in the Workplace
I have been part of the corporate world of Calgary for many years now and was able to observe the amount of stress employees are going through due to busy-ness at work, job dissatisfaction, mental overwhelm and emotional overload. I promised myself that I would commit to bringing spirituality to the workplace by creating safe environment to breath, relax and slow down the mind.
I offer over lunch 30-45 minutes mindfulness breathwork sessions for employees of the corporate Calgary and area. All I need is the boardroom that would accommodate 5 - 20 people and chairs to sit on. The results of the work I do are astonishing. I was able to observe changes in people from fidgety, unsettled, unable to sit still for a few minutes to peacefulness, stillness, calm in their body and mind. I am excited about transformation and change simple focus, concentration and breathing techniques produce with regular practice and committed determination.
Apple, Google, Nike, AOL Time Warner, AstraZeneka (pharmaceuticals) offer their employees meditation programs as part of their wellness package. Some benefits employees will experience as a result are:
Improved mental clarity and focus
Better conflict management and interpersonal skills
Decreased absenteeism due to illness
Stress relief and restful sleep
Increased employee loyalty
Improved communication and productivity
