There is research and a growing evidence based on the health and wellbeing benefits
Mindfulness at Work
Mindfulness at work can offer a wealth of benefits and help make your working experience calmer, more efficient and more productive. Our applied mindfulness approach has been tested and focuses on seeking a way in which being more mindful becomes a way of being and working, not just a concept or idea.
Effective for both employees and employers alike who wish to cultivate a positive environment within the workplace. This directly impacts working practices and workplace mindfulness and can help lead to fewer sick days, happier staff and a happy working environment using the power of mindfulness.
Our mindful workshops, courses and one-to-ones and coaching explore how to apply workplace mindfulness to daily work life. We have a set of mindful attitudes that can be used. We share informal and formal mindfulness practices and other useful tools and techniques that are focused on work and life integration.
For individuals the increased self-awareness is the opportunity for learning, growth and development.
These benefits include:
A clearer perception of our world
Being more present with the world as it is here and now
Increased regulation of our mind, body, emotions and impulses
Enhanced cognition and clarity of thinking
Calmer more measured responses to the world
Choosing our responses over reacting
Wiser behavioural actions and responses

The impact of meditation at work has also led to reduced sick leave, improved performance and happier, more productive staff.

We do run taster sessions. There are about assessing mutual fit.
We are non-academic, down to earth and every day in our approach. Whilst we are invovled in and know the lattest research, all our workplace mindfulness sessions are experiential. The evidence base we use is the evidence of participants own experience. We know this can be challenging for some people, but we have fun in the moment and there is always lots of learning from unexpected places and the impact lasts.
“It was a revelation to see how powerful and beautiful can be the use of metaphors and stories to convey meaning. They cut through confusion like lots of words never could.” Dan, Leicester University
"I have definitely adopted the personal workflow system. I am also ensuring that I listen to my body signalling that I am tired, thirsty etc. and exercising self-compassion - realising that in the long run this makes me more productive rather than less."
Rebecca, Charnwood BC

Creating a Compassionate Culture
Our creating compassionate culture program has been designed for individuals and teams who need to develop ways of working that are supportive, engaging and inclusive.
Our model is comprehensive and dynamic and impacts on many levels, but always starts with the self. It is a transformational process of development and not a transactional change process. It has been designed principally for those working in health and social care, but can equally be applied to other sectors.
Our Creating Compassionate culture program is modular. You can choose to access one or all 4 modules. The modular are

“Suryacitta has a calm, relaxed and open way of teaching which I found very helpful especially the group discussion and interaction. I continue to enjoy the benefits of this fascinating way to understand the mind and believe everyone would benefit from knowledge of this tool in the workplace.”
David, Director Scottish Power
“The environment our consultants work in can be very stressful at times; juggling many balls in the air on a daily basis. We looked at what makes people successful in the workplace and believe that a person’s happiness is the key to them achieving it. By offering the mindfulness course to our consultants we’re helping to keep them healthy “mentally” which has benefited them and the whole team.”
Phil Walker, Director Precision Recruitment
