One-Day Mindfulness Workshop
Nilan Johnson Lewis is a proud sponsor of Minnesota Zen Meditation Center’s One-Day Mindfulness Workshop. The workshop will be taught by Zen master Norman Fischer, a well-known leadership consultant and one of the founding designers of Google’s successful Search Inside Yourself leadership programs. The event is Friday, March 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The workshop will concentrate on eight mindfulness practices that grew out of Fischer’s work with Google and subsequent work with other professionals. They are based on ancient meditative techniques featured in Zen practice, defining a program for increasing your capacity to be more aware, resilient, and empathic. Having worked with thousands of people over many years, Fischer’s experience is that committed and steady practice of these techniques over time will lead to many positive changes professionally and personally. Being more aware of yourself and more connected to others can have a significant impact on both leadership and everyday coping skills.
