What if it were possible to transform our experience of the workplace through practices of mindfulness and love? How can we skillfully engage with our colleagues, tasks, and work environments in a way that promotes well-being and success?

This special day-long workshop uses a combination of discussion, exercises, mindfulness and compassion practices. Drawing from her new book Happier at Work acclaimed author, consultant, coach, and senior Shambhala teacher Gayle Van Gils shows us how we can learn to be happier and more engaged at work. Whether you are an entrepreneur, or work in an office, we all can benefit from connecting more deeply with our worthiness and joy in the work we do each day, and with each other.

This program is for:

  • Individuals who are stressed and overwhelmed by work….and want to change that
  • Leaders who want to create more collaborative and creative teams, and a productive, enjoyable work atmosphere
  • HR professionals who are looking for practices to share which will improve engagement, productivity, communication, health and joy at work
