How the Power of the Pause for Professionals works:
The Power of the Pause for Professionals is a 2-hour workshop designed to introduce participants to a variety of mindfulness tools such as meditation, visualization and conscious breathwork to help participants improve communication skills, become more comfortable with uncertainty and adversity and skillfully tap into intuition as a source of knowledge.
The Power of the Pause for Professionals Program focuses on four key elements of mindfulness:
Presence. Participants will explore the physical, emotional and situational triggers that cause them to negatively react in a particular situation rather than taking a pause in the moment to align their intention with a positive action so they can proceed forward in a manner that serves the higher good.
Pause. Participants will engage in a group discussion about the different types of pauses that may occur in our lives and identify the obstacles which can make it so hard for us to pause in those crucial moments.
Practice. Participants will engage in a variety of mindfulness practices such as meditation, yoga, affirmations and journaling, all of which are designed for self-care and to develop a deeper sense of self-awareness. Participants are encouraged to dress in comfortable clothing that allows movement.
Proceed. Participants will leave the workshop with simple tools and techniques that can immediately be put into an easy daily mindfulness practice.
