What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Creative Presence: A Meditation + Mindfulness Workshop
– Hosted at Gerson Lehrman Group
About this FieldTrip
“Meditation, it is like a lifelong gift, something you can call on at any time.” -Sir Paul McCartney
In the mad rush of blending work + life, we are often running in a million directions and our mind is pulled with it. The practice of Mindfulness is one that many successful business people, renowned artists, and entrepreneurs use to reach a state of calm, focus and rejuvenation to better arm them for the day ahead. In this workshop, Paige Davis of SoulSparks will teach us about the difference between mindfulness and meditation, bust through some myths and misconceptions, gain an understanding of how it impacts our brains, and learn how it can help us cope with stress, boost our creativity, and be more present in our lives.
Specific takeaways include:
1). Awareness exercises designed to bust through creative blocks.
2). Present moment practices you can do anywhere.
3). Key factors to creating a sustainable daily practice.
4). Guided meditations you can practice at work, in the car, and at home.
