Create Open Heart Connections at Work with Mindfulness
Susan Piver shares her journey of being a meditation teacher and author at Mindfulness @Work 2019. She explains and contrasts the difference between mindfulness, meditation & compassion. She reframes compassion as a fierce, brave, and courageous act, rather than the connotation of being soft or “nice”. According to Susan, the most important part of meditation is not what happens on the cushion, but how to bring this meditative sense into daily life and how we treat one another. Compassion also changes how people treat one another in the workplace and increases the ability to be receptive of creativity, innovation, and insights.
