Mindfulness, the practice of being in the moment has been the single most impactful tool I’ve used as CEO in overseeing the operations at Miraval.  It’s helped to create a work environment where each person can thrive.  Here are “Ten Ways Mindfulness Increases Success and Wellbeing at Work”:

Winter is coming to an end and the warmer weather is on its way! Here at Miraval, our guests spend much of their day outside hiking, swimming or doing a challenge activity. But you don't have to be on vacation to spend time outdoors. Spending time outside and soaking up the sunshine (and some much needed Vitamin D) will help you relieve stress, improve your mood, and boost your immune system. Plus, getting outside promotes activity and movement and we all know that being active helps keep your muscles and heart healthy. Here are five ways to spend more time outdoors.

Deep inside, we are all natural healers. Long ago, our ancestors knew how to heal themselves and others; how to connect to each other and to those who had passed beyond the physical plane; and how to ground their energy by being in tune with Mother Earth. In early cultures, practices like telepathy between mother and child and sending healing energy to a loved one out on a hunt were everyday routines the ancients didn’t think twice about doing.

These customs and skills may have been buried by our modern, technology-laden culture, but they are not lost! They are simply hanging out in our collective unconscious, waiting to be uncovered and put to use again. With some training and practice, you can reawaken these dormant abilities and learn to use them consciously, for yourself and your loved ones.

At my Miraval workshops and healing courses, I provide you with the tools to activate your own innate self-healing abilities. Whether the root cause is physical, spiritual, or emotional distress, distortions in your energy field and blocks in your chakras can prevent you from living in the light and fulfilling your highest purpose. Maintaining a healthy balance in your energy field is an ongoing process, but once you learn the basics of self-healing, you will feel transformed.

Here are five simple techniques that I offer at each workshop to get this process started:

1. Meditate.

I can’t stress this enough—if you only do one thing to begin the practice of self-healing, meditate. Meditation works at a deep level of consciousness to help reduce stress and tap into whatever information is needed to restore your mind, body, and spirit to a state of harmony. A regular practice of meditation—just 20 minutes—provides you with a sense of calm and an amazing clarity that can resolve many of your physical and emotional issues. I work with attendees at each and every workshop to insure they have a solid meditative base and we meditate together as a group each day, which takes us very deep. Talk about relaxing!
