Who is it for?
Everyone! Mindfulness has no stereotypes and has no secular link. In fact, we think it's helpful even for those who are the most skeptical.
Whether it's to improve your personal day-to-day life or help with work stress - stress is becoming a high risk factor in the workplace; 40% of workers report that their job is very or extremely stressful. Mindfulness is a cost effective and high impact way to reduce stress, increase engagement and happiness in the workplace. We’re all about making mindfulness fun through practical tools and making sustainable change to stress.
