Thank you for following up from the taste of mindfulness you experienced in one of my Mindfulness trainings. Even with this brief exposure, perhaps you felt the potential power of mindfulness not only for your professional work but also for your personal life.
This link will take you to key training materials selected from the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs which I've taught for over 15 years. This 8-Week Home Study Program (sometimes called the Stress Management Toolkit) contains a variety of recorded guided meditations, 10-, 20-, 45-minute versions, along with instructions introducing you to Hatha yoga. The training manual guides you through the program with weekly reading material and daily practice suggestions. During some weeks, select YouTube videos will move you toward your goal of cultivating a daily mindfulness practice.

I trust you'll give thoughtful consideration to making time in your busy life to work through this program - one week at a time. This is one of those "you get back what you put in" kind of things. Some people engage in this self-directed program like they are taking a college course. These folks often find that it transforms both their professional and private life. They become more relaxed and compassionate with themselves and others. Some other folks can only make time to practice with the guided meditations a few days a week yet still experience significant stress relief. You might ask yourself, "isn't now the perfect time to make this investment in myself?" There is no cost for these materials, you'll just need to invest your time and attention.

"Because our untrained minds take an enormous toll on our psychological and spiritual well-being,
and because, once tamed, a concentrated mind offers enormous benefits." From Essential Spirituality by Roger Walsh.
I've provided a selection of YouTube videos below that I use in some of my other mindfulness training programs. They present current research findings on the power of mindfulness as well as various elements of our "social engagement system." It's a safe bet that you'll find some of them interesting and stimulating and perhaps they will encourage you to further explore some of these areas of research.
If you have any difficulty accessing or downloading this material, please drop me a note and we'll de-bug together.
Let me know how I can support you and/or your organization on this journey to a more peaceful, healthy and productive lifestyle and a more effective business process - the natural fruits of a regular mindfulness practice!
