Description

Making Mindfulness Accessible with Tara Marie Healey, M.Ed.

Mindfulness is everywhere these days. Because of this there is a risk of watering down and losing the essence, meaning and value of this ancient and profound practice. What exactly is mindfulness and where does meditation fit in? How does one introduce practices in corporate or other non-traditional settings? And finally, what are the best practices, what should be avoided when introducing mindfulness in different environments and what resources support ongoing development and practice?

At the end of this event, participants will be able to:

1. describe and define mindfulness and meditation

2. identify 3 values related to their professional self-care and prevention of occupational hazards

3. describe at least 2 mindset shifts that can help facilitate integration of self-care into professional and personal life

4. identify 3 self-care practices that could be seamlessly integrated into the workday

In addition to holding an M.Ed. in Health Education and having over 20 years of experience in organizational development, Tara is a longtime practitioner of mindfulness and an advocate for the health benefits associated with practice. The comprehensive suite of mindfulness courses developed by Tara have been conducted at over 150 organizations, reaching over 10,000 individuals. Additionally Tara has spoken at numerous events domestic and abroad and has contributed to articles to Mindful Magazine and the Harvard Business Review blog.
