THE VENUE Work Club Melbourne: 287, Collins St - Melbourne CBD. THE PURPOSE Guess what a Chinese lawyer, a Brazilian (reformed) data scientist, an Aussie Health, Safety & Wellbeing manager, a Planet Ark Ambassador and an international Agile Coach have in common? A long term and solid mindfulness practice that underpins their successful and happiness driven lives. In the last 5 years mindfulness has moved out of temples in the East and become one of the most powerful mainstream business and life tools of the West. It has been embraced by the revered Harvard Business Review to humble primary schools, and adopted by law firms and banks to start-ups, government agencies and an ever-growing list of Fortune 500 companies. Still, there is a lot of confusion surrounding mindfulness…and although most people have heard about it, many don’t truly understand what mindfulness actually is and how to (easily and quickly) integrate it into their work and personal lives. Join 5 energetic, enigmatic and engaging mindfulness experts for a rich and insightful discussion exploring what this tool and practice is really all about, and most importantly, discover how to put mindfulness in action throughout your daily life for countless physical, psychological and psychological benefits that will flow into your family, your community and our planet.
