An interactive workshop which will address the difficulties encountered in everyday work experiences

We spend many, many hours of our lives at work. Sometimes the work environment is wonderful but sometimes it can be chaotic. How can we use our Zen practice and other tools to navigate this often precarious landscape?

Right livelihood, balance, and happiness at work will all be part of this day-long workshop, where we will:

  • Use simple, interactive work practice activities to explore our relationship to what arises at work, including boredom, frustration, irritation, restlessness, procrastination, and reactivity
  • Discuss dealing with difficult people and explore what we think might be missing in our work lives
  • Practice mindfulness and introduce awareness tools which can provide an antidote to many of our work day issues

Please wear clothing appropriate for the work portion of the workshop.
