If you’re the kind of person who could never spend five minutes a day staring at a raisin and who thinks that meditation and mindfulness is only for other people, this online session is for you. (If you’re interested in exploring what it’s like to eat a raisin mindfully, go to the end of this email.)
These are strange times, and even those of us who have never before felt the need, realize that we need to learn some new techniques for calming our frazzled nerves and finding our centre.
Dr Kirti Ranchod is someone who has spent time around my dining room table when we had our WeLead Circles together over breakfast rather than at our desks through Zoom. She’s wise and grounded in a warm, accessible way and as a scientist and neurologist prefers to speak about “brain health”.
But she’s also someone who walks the talk in her own life and is committed to creativity, trying new things, meeting new people and (pre-Covid-19) travel.
Join us to find some practical ways to access your own style of calm and learn too about the power of neuroscience for productivity and leadership.
The Neuroscience of Calm – will present practical, simple steps to work towards calm in the midst of chaos.
What you will learn
1. Why you as an individual, a parent and a leader need calm
2. Understanding plasticity – and the good news about what this means for your (previously frazzled) brain
3. Practical mindfulness exercises based in neuroscience (no raisins)
4. How to develop a personalised strategy to find your own inner calm
