Tension is normal; stress is not. It is not difficult to transform the habitual tendencies of becoming stressed and overwhelmed into an authentic presence with easy access to creative energy. From within we are at dynamic rest, while outwardly we are engaged, confident and joyfully manifesting positive results. You now have the opportunity to develop your own awareness, knowledge, tools, and experience to consistently transform stress as it appears in your life. A life with more flow, ease, and focus await you.
RETURNING TO A NATURAL BALANCE
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s teachings of Skillful Means provide proven methods that you can use at work and at home to transform stress into well-being. Returning to a natural balance will be the heart of this program. You will be on a path of transformation and of refining your inner resources. Skillful Means insights and methods will bring your life and work to a higher, richer, and more effective level. You do not need to set extra time aside to experience this; these tools are effective while working while going about your daily life.
The Mindfulness at Work program offers ways to avoid burnout, to reduce stress, and to help create an ongoing sense of well-being. You can learn to welcome and even thrive on tension. In this program, you will discover that by nature you are positive, collaborative and caring. Wholehearted participation is our response to being alive. By navigating life’s opportunities and challenges you will learn to ride an inner joy that brings with it quality results on time.
LEARNING WHILE DOING
This process is based on ‘learning while doing’ and the ultimate goal of this method is to directly contact the experience of living and working well, without nagging emotionality, but with an abundance of creative, caring energy.
To prevent stress completely or to keep it from reaching a crisis point, you will learn how to apply tools that will help you to develop radar-like sensitivity and gut-level energy, reaching levels of accomplishment beyond your present imagination.
Through this program, we will develop unshakeable confidence and as this shines in us, in our bodies, minds, and actions, we naturally share our experience and ways of being and acting with others.
