Creating a Culture of Mindfulness at Work: Champions Retreat

Friday, August 16th to Sunday, August 18th | Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY



Overview: This unconference style retreat is presented by Mindful Leader and the Garrison Institute. We will dive deep into the day-to-day realities of crafting & stewarding successful mindfulness-based programs within large and mid-size organizations. The format will be highly participatory, borrowing much from the unconference framework (open space technologies). We will come together to build supportive relationships with peers and share best practices. Throughout the weekend, there will also be ample opportunities for yoga, walking in nature, communal vegetarian meals, & meditation.

  • Are interested in bringing mindfulness to their workplace
