“Jon provided two Mindfulness sessions to some of our staff, as part of QLD Mental Health Week. These sessions received unanimously positive feedback. We are keen to get Jon back to provide mindfulness training to our Peer Support Officers in the near future. Jon was the consummate professional with a great sense of humour and unfaltering calmness – it was clear that he really practises what he preaches when he was able to improvise without a hitch when our technology wouldn’t allow him to use his laptop/PowerPoint. Thank you again Jon for your time, knowledge and expertise.”

Latest research shows that mindfulness can:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety;
  • Improve productivity and work performance;
  • Increase resilience and self-awareness;
  • Enhance emotional intelligence, focus and engagement;
  • Enhance cognitive performance such as concentration, memory and processing speed; and
  • Improve relationships and overall well-being.
Researchers at the University of Washington found that HR professionals who took an eight week mindfulness course could concentrate better, stay on task longer, and remember what they’d done better than those who didn’t take the course.
In a study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, participants trained in mindfulness meditation experienced significantly less emotional exhaustion and more job satisfaction than those who received no training.

Testimonials

"We had Jon come into our workplace and gave a four-week mindfulness course, with Lyndi helping to carry out the workshop. It came at a time where there was a lot of stress in relation to many changes at work, and it turned out to be exactly what we needed. It was refreshing to see many team members become so open to not only the idea of mindfulness, but share a lot of personal information, which resulted in a closer connection amongst the team. My only regret is the fact that not every team member was available to hear all the great content given, due to scheduling difficulties. Even though I had already become exposed to the idea of mindfulness, I got a lot from the workshop. Not only from the content but also the discussion amongst the team during and after sessions. Both Jon and Lyndi were fantastic in presenting content to the team and their calm and understanding approach definitely helped participants become at ease with everything. Thank you for all your help, and will definitely look at revisiting in the future when we need a refresher."

Dr. Viet Le, Partner at The Dental Project

"Jon delivered a combined presentation and workshop for our Bachelors and Masters students as part of a subject. The presentation fitted right into the topic with an extensive insight into mindfulness. After his presentation the classroom dynamics changed. Students become more focused, more sensitive to discussion topics and more compassionate with each other while interacting in classroom activities. Jon's presentation was incredibly informative and entertaining with easy-to-digest yet thought-provoking material. He is really engaging with different age groups and finds the voice with people from all different ethnic backgrounds. Mindfulness is a missing concept in education. It should be taught and practiced on a daily basis by students and teaching professionals. Looking forward to Jon's next seminar!"
