Exploring the Power of Mindfulness with Rajiah Williams Leong

July 22, 2021
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Online Event

ERM Mindfulness is an online program designed with positive psychology insights and neuroscience research to help participants to experience the present moment with increased acceptance, nurturing curiosity and promoting collaboration.

Our minds have a natural tendency to wander. Now with the challenges that come from increased time spent at home and away from in-person activities, we have an opportunity to develop a greater sense of wellbeing and interconnectedness by training our minds to become more aware and less judgmental.

By cultivating awareness of emotions while reinforcing positive values and goals, students will have an opportunity to practice mindful listening and meditation in 3 sections:

  1. Clarity: focused attention and open monitoring guided meditations
  2. Compassion: active listening and self-compassion for collaboration
  3. Creativity: leadership communication and visualization
