“In this episode, Mirabai Bush talks about how to integrate mindfulness into the workplace, using her experience of creating the mindfulness program at Google.
Most people today are asked to improve performance at work with fewer resources and tighter deadlines, all while dealing with equally stressed co-workers and clients. This toxic combination leads to employee burnout and harms organizations. While people may not have control over stressors at work, mindfulness-based exercises are a scientifically proven, natural way to manage one’s responses to them.
Mirabai Bush’s mindfulness trainings for the workplace are based on traditional Buddhist practices to help reduce stress, increase productivity, and encourage creative problem solving.”
Mirabai is a Key Contributor to Google’s Search Inside Yourself Curriculum.
She has released a new CD called “Working With Mindfulness” available on the Ram Dass webstore.
