Office Chair Yoga (30-60 minutes)

Limitations to yoga classes in the office include: 1) having space and 2) changing clothes. Jerry has adapted a style of yoga practice that allows participants to stay in their normal clothes and still get the effects of a regular yoga class, all from the comfort of an office chair. This class is easily done in a conference room or at your desk, and can fit into anyone's lunch hour.

Mindfulness & Journaling Sessions (30-45 minutes)

Mindfulness meditation and journaling is a great way to help bring awareness to and organize our thoughts and feelings. In this experience, participants will be led through a brief mindfulness meditation where they will be given a writing prompt. They'll then have time to write freely on the topic, unstopped. We'll end the session with a short discussion about the insights they gained and paths forward with that information. *Virtual only* (more info)

Mindfulness @ Work - 2 Part Series

 

Part 1: Mindful Communication (45-60 minutes)

This talk looks into who we are "being" in our day to day interactions, including communication ethics to awareness of individual sensibilities (i.e. - introversion vs. extroversion) to ensure that what we say (and how we think) aligns with our personal core values. The goal of this talk is to give participants a new awareness and new language when it comes to self-accountability about how they communicate in the workplace (and life). This program is especially great for leaders who are looking for new ways to connect with their direct reports. (more info)

Part 2: Mindful Behavior (45-60 minutes)

This talk looks into who we are "being" in our day to day interactions in relationship to our actions and how we show up, ensuring that our behaviors align with our personal core values and the concept of non-harming. The goal of this talk is to give participants a new awareness and new language when it comes to self-accountability about their behaviors in the workplace (and life), including mindful timing and how they can organize their schedules more mindfully.

Self-Leadership @ Work (60-90 minutes)

In this workshop, Jerry introduces a new way of looking at your mind where YOU become the leader of your mind, instead of being pulled and pushed by your reactivity and desires. You’ll learn that even when you’re less skillful, you’re still a good person. You will also become aware of an aspect of your consciousness that isn’t affected by the trials and tribulations of life and learn to identify more with that sense of Self. All of this awareness will help you to show up better for yourself, your coworkers, friends and family, and your career. (more info)
