Relational mindfulness: Building moment by moment awareness in our client relationships and beyond
June 15 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Coaching Psychologist and Relational Mindfulness Professional
As business psychologists, our way of being in relationship will influence client outcomes perhaps as much as the tools, techniques and skills we deploy. Practising mindfulness and meditation can help us to be more present, aware and resourceful in each moment with our clients. Relational mindfulness takes this a step further by bringing our practice of mindfulness right into the moment of interaction with others and providing guidelines to support us to engage in mindful dialogue.

This experiential introduction offers an opportunity to explore what relational mindfulness is and to experience how the practice could benefit your professional (and other) relationships. It will be aimed at coaches, consultants and anyone for whom relationships are a key part of their role. The session will include both individual and relational mindfulness practice (the latter in pairs or triads in breakout rooms).
