City Visions: The Mindfulness Revolution - Inspiring Corporate America?

Feb 23, 2016

On February 29, 2016 host Joseph Pace and guests explore the ways Bay Area companies are incorporating mindfulness into the workplace. 

 What are the benefits -- and limitations -- of on-the-job mindfulness practices? Can workplace-based mindfulness programs relieve stress and foster productivity, as proponents claim? Can practices with spiritual origins, such as meditation, be secularized for the workplace? 

Guests:

Richard Fernandez, Ph.D. - Co-founder and President, Wisdom Labs

Meg Levie- VP of Teacher Development, Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute; Teacher, San Francisco Zen Center

Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Ph.D.- Science Director, Greater Good Science Center at U.C. Berkeley; Co-Instructor, Science of Happiness online course, Greater Good Science Center, EdX; Director, Expanding Gratitude Project, Greater Good Science Center
