Mitra designs and delivers Mindful Workplace Training Programs which lay the foundation for employees to learn the principles of mindfulness and apply them at work on an ongoing basis, while also developing a personal mindfulness practice.

These programs are designed around your company’s unique organizational wants & needs, and cover such areas as mindful communication, decision-making, problem-solving, email and technology, deadlines, time-management, stress-management, work-life balance, and much more.

Stand-alone executive programs focus on mindful leadership, purpose and values, big picture decision-making, clear communication and goals, skillful delegation and boundaries, stress management and a happy balance between work and home.

Both programs lead to more creativity and productivity, personal and organizational happiness and health, less absenteeism and an increasingly positive bottom line.

Mitra’s programs integrate decades of teaching Eastern mindfulness practices with decades of Western corporate training/coaching experience.

Mindful Aging - October 2019 in Beverly hills

Mondays, October 7 to October 28, 2019, from 7:00-9:00 pm

If we stop it, we’re dead! If we continue it un-mindfully, we’re suffering. Yes, we're talking about aging! We all are experiencing it, and we all can grow through it and benefit from it -- but how?

In this 4-week class, Mitra will guide you to examine your existing beliefs, assumptions & cultural narratives about aging. The course provides practical mindfulness tools for you to experience this natural flow of life with a deeper sense of awareness, appreciation, and wonder. By befriending our aging process we can directly and positively participate in our experience of being alive. Since all of us are indeed aging, this course is open to people of all ages above 16.

Mindfulness experience is a plus, but not a must.
