– Exclusive to Henley Partnership members –

This webinar with Gelong Thubten โ€“ Buddhist monk and renowned thought leader and speaker โ€“ explains how non-religious mindful meditation can help you to create a resourceful mental state amid the rapidly changing environment that we all now live in. This practice has become widespread and well recognised as a way of positively managing your mental health. It has been proven to help reduce stress and improve focus, as well as improve your wellbeing, happiness and motivation.

Thubten will explain techniques and describe their application in the workplace, giving you practical tools which you can apply in your daily lives.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this event you will:

  • understand how to create a resourceful mental state โ€“ whatever the exterior disturbance
  • have the presence and calmness of mind to make sound, unhurried decisions
  • be able to reduce stress and increase your ability to maintain a resilient and balanced outlook
  • have a more positive mental attitude and greater energy and motivation.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to better manage their internal state and their ability to remain resourceful to themselves, whatever the external pressures.

โ€œThe feedback from colleagues has been excellent and they found your delivery style to be highly engaging and approachable. We are now finding the value of being more mindful particularly as we are all now working in fast paced and ever changing work environmentsโ€.
