Summer Soiree/Mindfulness Mixer and Mindfulness in the Workplace Conference

NH Professional Mindfulness Community’s Summer Soiree
Tuesday July 9 5:30 – 8:30 pm, Free
At the Center for Health Promotion, 49 S. Main St., Suite 201, Concord NH

This is our first annual friend-raiser, offered for free to all those interested in gathering with mindfulness colleagues from around the state. We’ll be doing this event potluck-style, meaning, we’ll welcome what we each bring! You’re invited to offer a potluck dish for the buffet, your favorite poem to read at some point in the evening, and/or a mini mindfulness practice to share with friends. After we’ve visited, eaten and enjoyed some time together, we’ll turn to a favorite Center for Health Promotion teacher for a window of artful quiet.

Diane Lachance, Certified Zentangle Teacher, will be guiding us in a meditation using the method of mindful drawing known as Zentangle. For professionals in the field of mindfulness, this will be an opportunity to experience firsthand how this art form can awaken one’s ability, nourish new awareness and find joy whether one has any ability to draw or not. Join us and see what creativity lies, unaware, within you!

Pre-registration is requested by calling 230-7300.

In whatever way you bring your work into the world, it’s likely that you and your colleagues are experiencing the challenges of our evolving work culture: productivity pressures, difficulty focusing, emotional reactivity, communications barriers. More and more, we’re hearing about organizations that are adopting mindfulness as a valuable means for fostering calm, resiliency, confidence, clear communication and creativity at work. Come learn from experienced professionals about the benefits and challenges of bringing mindfulness to business, and hear from NH organizations who are doing just that. We’ll be joined by Tara Healey, Director for Mindfulness-Based Learning at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Patton Hyman, Executive Director of Applied Mindfulness Training, Inc., as well as a panel of NH leaders who are tapping into the potential for mindfulness in their own organizations.

Register early, there is limited seating and we do expect this to sell out.
