Mindfulness can be of great help in a work environment. Sometimes, we can feel out of control or overwhelmed. I now have a greater ability to put work stress into perspective, to notice it, and am able to move on from it in a productive manner.” - MIT Press participant

“This program helped me identify ways to reframe some challenging work relationships and patterns. Work is difficult enough without feeling adversarial with coworkers. It helped me rethink my overall work/life balance and it continues to improve my life.” - MIT Press participant

One of the most valuable parts of this training for me was learning that mindfulness is not about stopping thoughts but re-focusing on the present.” - Triumvirate Environmental participant
