A PORT IN THE STORM – Introduction to Relational Mindfulness

Change and uncertainty is stressful and can impair your clarity, performance and resilience over time. It’s essential for busy people to find a port in the storm, so you can rest and regroup, and chart your way forward while standing in a place of calm and presence.

Re-enter life with greater calm and perspective

In this 3 session course, you will experience how to create a port in the storm for yourself with your peers. You will learn how to relax into deep listening and feel a calm, open, reflective internal state. Through mindful dialogue and self-awareness practices, you will tap into the deeper stability, presence and intelligence that supports more conscious leadership. Relational mindfulness skills are transferable to your daily life, opening a door to more calm, connectivity, and creativity at work.

When and Where

I believe that the ability to dialogue is increasingly fundamental and more valued in the business world; therefore, I consider this course to be very useful for the development of a professional career. I think (I hope) I have improved in my interactions with other people, both in 1:1 conversations and in groups / meetings.

The practice of noticing ‘how my feelings feel’ has been transformative. I have learnt to listen, to hear, and to connect more deeply to others through staying committed to present moment awareness.
