The Relaxed Mind Meditation Group
How do you get stuff done and do some good in this world without going crazy?
Work life can be creative and energizing. But constant change and the pressure of work can be the perfect recipe for stress and burnout. From a practical perspective, this undercuts your leadership effectiveness, and it isn’t conducive to innovation, creativity, and big-picture thinking. It’s also an unsatisfying way to live.
We are all leaders and mindfulness is a way to work with the highs and lows at work and cultivates a flexible, creative mindset that enables you to be in the world with insight, caring and confidence.
The Relaxed Mind.
We practice a series of meditations based on methods developed by modern meditation master, Kilung Rinpoche and shared in his book, The Relaxed Mind.
These meditations are refreshingly simple and designed for busy westerners. Rather than approaching meditation as yet another project, this approach brings together relaxation, mindful awareness, and compassion as a path to uncover your innate insight, compassion, and confidence.
We meet every other Thursday from 7:00 pm -8:30 pm in Newton Center. You Click here here to see class schedule.
