More Dates

Join us for an intensive course in mindfulness, presented live-on-the-web in four 90-minute workshops, with step-by-step home study, and 90-days of self-paced mobile learning. Mindfulness @ Work provides the knowledge, hands-on experience, tools and support to establish and sustain a successful mindfulness practice.

Why Mindfulness @ Work?

Because understanding and practicing mindfulness will transform your personal well-being AND your professional capabilities. Reducing stress and strengthening attention control leads to better health, more happiness, higher performance and increased productivity. Mindfulness @ Work will put you on the path to greater mental strength, cognitive performance and emotional intelligence — and teach you to apply those outcomes, to drive success for you and your organization. The course includes:

  • A deep-dive into the nature, science and practice of mindfulness – What it is, where it came from, why it’s so important, how it’s practiced, the research in neuroscience and psychology, the proven outcomes and how to apply them.
  • Hands-on instruction in formal and informal meditation, and help in establishing a personal mindfulness practice that fits your lifestyle and objectives.
  • Daily strategies and actions for improving your health, happiness and relationships — reducing stress, distraction, toxicity and conflict — and improving your focus, performance and productivity at work and home.
  • 90-day unlimited access to the Whil mobile app, with over 1,200 guided meditation, yoga and mindful movement sessions — and the entire Search Inside Yourself video curriculum produced by Google University.
  • Lifetime access to Id8TE’s Student Portal mobile app, with step-by-step help, and a library of hand-curated books, videos, articles and journaled research studies on modern mindfulness.
  • Lifetime access to Id8TE’s moderated communities on Facebook and LinkedIn, and 24/7 expert support.

Why is Mindfulness So Important?

Because two decades of research, and over 4,000 journaled studies have proven that mindfulness changes the structure and function of the brain, and produces remarkable benefits in health and wellness, cognitive performance and emotional intelligence.

Health and Wellness:

  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Reduces rumination and depression
  • Reduces chronic illness
  • Strengthens immunity and resilience
  • Slows cellular aging

Cognitive Performance:

  • Improves attention and concentration
  • Improves focus and clarity
  • Improves situational awareness
  • Improves critical thinking and decision-making
  • Improves logic, strategy and planning
  • Expands working memory

Emotional Intelligence:

  • Increases self-awareness
  • Strengthens self-management
  • Deepens empathy and compassion
  • Improves communication skills
  • Sharpens intuition and rapport

Mindfulness is a proven process for mental fitness that dampens stress-producing information overload, digital distraction and overwhelm – while strengthening the calm awareness, positivity and focused attention that drives higher performance, better relationships and increased productivity.

Think about how valuable these outcomes can be for you, your loved ones, friends and co-workers.

Why Does it Matter to My Organization?

Because the benefits you gain from mindful practice are exactly the attributes your organization most values. Focused, engaged and emotionally intelligent people perform at a higher level — are more productive — are a pleasure to collaborate with — and become the most effective leaders.

Science-based mindfulness training is the most cost-effective and transformational investment your company can make in you, your team, and the enterprise as a whole. How much more effective will you be at work, as a result of steady gains in physical, intellectual and emotional strength? The answer is LOTS. That’s a great personal outcome for you, and a big win for the organization. Multiply those gains across the workforce, and you can see why we’re so excited about bringing mindfulness into the business mainstream.

The Workshops

I. Mindful Basics


This session is an introduction to the most important fundamentals of mindfulness – What it is, where it came from, why it’s so important today, how it’s practiced, and the neuroscience that supports it.

We’ll look at the research and the proven benefits in health and wellness, cognitive performance and emotional intelligence – Then learn the fundamentals of meditation, how to set our intentions – and how to establish a durable, effective mindfulness practice that fits our priorities and schedule.

As we go, we’ll learn mindfulness practices that cultivate fundamental attention control and positivity.

II. Mindful Me


This session explores the impact of mindfulness on our own health and happiness – dampening stress and anxiety, while strengthening mental fitness and resilience.

We’ll see how mindfulness improves self-awareness; sharpening our understanding of ourselves, how we affect others, and how we’re perceived in the world – We’ll learn how to exercise better control of our thoughts, emotions and behaviors – and we’ll learn to overcome self-doubt and self-criticism, with self-compassion.

As we go, we’ll learn mindfulness practices that cultivate our self-knowledge, self-control and self-acceptance.

III. Mindful You


This session teaches us to apply mindfulness to help create and sustain positive and rewarding relationships with others.

We’ll learn about the dynamics of empathy and compassion, and how they shape human nature, our societies, and our relationships at work and home – We’ll see how mindfulness enables us to connect more closely, listen more deeply and communicate more effectively – and how it helps us navigate and resolve conflict when relationships become difficult.

As we go, we’ll learn mindful practices that cultivate social skills and emotional intelligence.

IV. Mindful Work


This session brings mindfulness to our offices and jobs, by far the major sources of stress, anxiety and depression for American adults.

We’ll see how mindfulness can help us deal directly with information overload, digital distraction and burnout at work – We’ll learn mindful strategies for managing our calendars, our meetings, email, text and social media – and emergency mindfulness, in case we’re flooded or suddenly overwhelmed.

As we go, we’ll learn mindful practices that cultivate calm, awareness and concentration.

Who Should Attend?

Everyone benefits from greater health, happiness and well-being. But mindfulness goes deeper than wellness, to improve intellectual performance and emotional intelligence — which in turn, strengthens core and functional competencies.

What Functions, What Competencies?

Leaders at Every Level experience greater clarity, concentration, critical thinking and decision making capabilities – and gain the self-awareness, authenticity and compassion to influence and mobilize others. That’s why top business schools (including Harvard, Wharton, Sloan, Stanford, Kellogg and many more) are moving quickly to add mindful practices into their core leadership curriculum.


Strategic HR Professionals are important stakeholders in workforce wellness, employee engagement, diversity and inclusion — and are the front line for mediation and conflict resolution. As a result, SHRM’s most important HR competencies align closely with mindful outcomes in self-awareness, empathy, intuition, strong communication skills and calm diplomacy. HR is also the gateway for progressive workforce solutions like mindfulness, and should clearly understand the practice, and its application in the workplace.


Sales and Customer Service Reps are often the first point of contact and most visible representatives of a company’s true character and values. The most successful sales professionals are self-motivated, confident and highly resilient, with great intuition, listening skills and rapport-building capabilities. Great customer service starts with happy, engaged and positive problem-solvers in every client-facing position.


Engineers and Developers use mindfulness to step away from distraction, and into the deep concentration that takes them to a state of flow. The very best developers are elite performers, who lose track of time and space as they become increasingly engaged and connected to their work.


Creatives and Knowledge Workers use mindfulness to silence the incessant rumination on past events and constant worry about the future that characterize the human default mode. With deep concentration in the present, unexpected thoughts arise, new connections are made, ideas form and insights are realized.


Safety Professionals and High Reliability Organizations (HROs) in Energy, Health Care, Manufacturing and other complex, dynamic industries value mindfulness for the focus and situational awareness it brings to a potentially dangerous workplace.

Should I Attend at Work?

Yes! — We’ve purposely scheduled the workshops so that you can attend (as you would any other important online business training) at your desk, in your office, or a conference room. Mindfulness @ Work is designed to help you establish a personal practice, but the human capital you gain will be coming right back to your company, in the form of deeper engagement, higher motivation and initiative, stronger focus and concentration, and increased emotional intelligence skills.

Mindfulness is a personal discipline, and will positively affect many areas of your life. But Mindfulness @ Work is a professional training, in that it not only teaches the nature, science and practices of mindfulness, but how to effectively apply those practices in the workplace. That’s a powerful win-win for you and your organization.

Can I Invite my Team?

Yes! — We offer Team Discounts that range from 30% to 50%. If you have a large enough group, an even more cost-effective option is to book Mindfulness @ Work as a dedicated corporate training (that we’ll tailor to your objectives, and deliver on the schedule that works best for you).

The VUCA Workplace

It’s not just you – we’re all coping with relentless change, in a newly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world. As our smart phones and tablets are erasing the boundaries between our jobs and home, we’re working longer, harder and under greater pressure than ever before – In fact, we now spend twice as much time at work, as we spend on all of our other waking activities combined.

  • Sleeping 32%
  • Working 44%
  • Household 6%
  • Meals 6%
  • Social 5%
  • Leisure 7%

So what we experience in the workplace (whether at the office, or working virtually, or logging-in after hours), has a profound impact on how we think, feel and behave in every other part of our lives. If we’re struggling to manage negativity, anxiety and frustration at work, how can we hope to be healthy, happy and productive in our remaining (and arguably most important) waking hours?

The Toxicity of Work-Related Stress

Workplace stress isn’t just ruining our day, it’s making us sick:

  • Stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century (World Health Organization, 2012)
  • Stress is a major contributing factor to the six leading causes of death in America (NIH 2014)
  • Workplace pressures are far and away the major source of stress for American adults (AIS 2016)

Stress gives us headaches and heartburn. It makes us uncomfortable, unhappy, irritable and unpleasant to be around. In short, it hurts our bodies, our minds, our closest relationships, and our quality of life.

The Virtuous Cycle of Mindfulness

Science has proven that mindfulness is a path to better health, happiness and performance. Mindful practices improve our mental state and well-being, our immunity and resilience, cognitive performance and emotional intelligence. That means we feel better physically, we’re happier and more positive, intellectually sharper, and more attractive to others.

By practicing mindfulness to reduce stress, anxiety and conflict throughout the work day, we not only become more focused, engaged and successful at work, we improve the quality of our lives overall.
