Improving Mindfulness will provide benefits throughout their professional and personal lives. Improving mindfulness through gratitude, filtering, and active listening will give participants the advantage of seeing things in a new light. This workshop has the ability to give your participants an increased recognition of mental events in the present moment which provides countless benefits.
