“This has been incredibly effective in helping me be in closer touch to what excites and drives ME. I had to begin with finding the what/where/who before using it toward a certain goal. It helps me at this point identify goals and dreams, and I feel like I have a tool to reach these things with this process moving forward.” – Participant
Using Mindfulness, Meditation and Visualization for Personal and Professional Development – 10 week incubator
Instructor: Rhonda Schaller
The Meditation Incubator seeks to offer participants an opportunity to learn meditation and mindfulness, to deepen creativity through visualization, and develop tools to develop a personal and professional development plan through contemplative practices. Using visualization and guided meditation, participants will deepen their creative process and create a meditative lens through which to view and plan their ideas and careers.The course is designed to help participants establish a meditation practice, provide practical “hands on” experience in the design and management of a personal development plan through the use of creative visualization and mind mapping, as well as an understanding of how to connect their well-being with career development.
