Mindfulness for Resilience 

Mindfulness and other meditation techniques can be mastered by regular people to improve their lives and help them achieve their goals.  That’s why leading companies have embraced mindfulness training or mindfulness meditation to increase employee well-being and performance, Apple, Google, Nike, Procter & Gamble, HBO, McKinsey & Co, Deutsche Bank and Yahoo! to name just a few offer mindfulness programmes.  Happier more productive employees help drive performance.

This workshop is suitable for people new to mindfulness practice or experienced meditators.  It is practical and experiential, but we frame our approach with relevant theoretical understanding to support delegates to adopt and maintain healthful habits.  The main covered are techniques:

  • Body scanning

  • Awareness of breathing meditation 

  • Compassion based guided imagery meditation

  • Self-enquiry meditation

Resilience is the ability to cope with life’s challenges and unexpected changes.  It’s not always possible to prevent stressful or adverse situations, but we can strengthen our capacity to deal with challenges.  Even after misfortune, resilient people are able to change course and move toward achieving their goals

But resilience is neither a magical ability or an inherent quality that some people are fortunate to be born with; it takes real mental work to overcome the challenges life throws at us.  There's growing evidence that the elements of resilience can be cultivated.


Mindfulness is much talked about and the term has various meanings.  It is used to describe a form of meditation that developed in the Buddhsit tradition but it is also a natural state of human consciousness.  Contemporary mindfulness meditation practices are secular applications of this ancient approach. Mindfulness is an inner resource that we can cultivate. With increased awareness, concentration and positivity we can then better deal with challenges, set and achieve our goals.  

There is an impressive and growing body of research evidence that supports the use of mindfulness based approaches in a wide range of applications; such as:

  • Building resilience - preventing burnout and reducing work related stress

  • Embodiment - being present in the moment and aware - enhancing physical or sporting performance

  • Improving memory and concentration to enhance study skills and academic performance

  • Building empathy and improving the quality of our relationships

  • Living well with persistent pain and long term health conditions

  • Managing anxiety and depression

Objectives Mindfulness for Resilience Workshop:

  • Learn practical mindfulness techniques to strengthen your resilience ‘muscles’

  • Introduction to the neuroscience & evolutionary psychology of mindfulness & compassion

  • Understand the mental habits that build resilience

  • Construct a plan to incorporate mindfulness techniques into your life to increase your resilience
