Retreat: Zen in the Workplace

Post written by Leo Babauta.

For a weekend in August, I will join Zen teacher Susan O’Connell in leading a weekend retreat in the beautiful Tassajara Zen Mountain Center entitled, “Zen in the Workplace: The Benefits of Mindful Work”.

For a few days, step away from the busyness and pressures of your life, and find the rhythm of your own breath. Feel the summer breeze, enjoy delicious food, and immerse yourself in the healing waters of the hot springs and the refreshing cool of Tassajara Creek.

Learn how simple mindfulness practices can transform your everyday work life, improving health, stress, effectiveness, relationships and happiness.

Susan and I will explore the benefits of mindfulness in the workplace. Students will learn simple mindfulness practices that will help them find focus in the workplace, deal with a constant stream of interruptions, collaborate mindfully, and deal with technology and distractions. Zazen, walking meditation, and awareness exercises will help students learn to be mindful and find peace even in the midst of busy-ness and chaos. We’ll also explore our need for more information, and the experience of “enough.”

The retreat runs from Aug. 15-17, and you should sign up now to get a spot.
