  • “Counting the breath” meditation

Module  4

Metacognition and Decision-making

Module 4 looks at metacognition - i.e. the ability to observe your thoughts. This introduces the distinction between participants' thoughts and participants themselves. You are not your thoughts: you are what observes your thoughts. The practice allows for more clear-eyed and focused decision-making by helping participants recognise the unseen drivers behind their thoughts and decisions.

Exercises include:
  • Meditation on thoughts with breath as the anchor

Takeaway practice:

  • Breath counting
  • Journaling
Module  5


Module 5 continues the learning from Module 4 and applies it to movement and attention. Participants are introduced to the concept that only attention is under our control (not thoughts and situations etc). This understanding helps increase mindful focus and purposeful movement.

Exercises include:
  • Guided meditation on mindful movement meditation
  • Moving the attention

Takeaway practice:

  • Mindful walking, or Hatha yoga
  • Journaling
Module  6

Performance and Creativity

Module 6 invites participants to practise the pause: giving our brains time to catch up, and move from reactivity to responsibility. This session focuses on making the choice about how to respond to life’s events with acceptance, patience and without judgment. Without past experiences colouring our reactions and expectations, responses are more clear-eyed and fair, allowing for more honest actions and communications. This pause between impulse and action is fruitful ground for creativity, as it breaks established patterns to allow new thinking to blossom and performance to change.

Exercises include:
  • Body scan
  • Guided meditation on noticing thoughts, feelings, and sensations

Takeaway practice:

  • Body scan practice
  • Journaling
Module  7

Mindful Communication and Teamwork

Module 7 brings together learnings from previous modules with a focus on listening deeply and speaking honestly, which helps to improve communication and teamwork. What does it mean to pause in conversation and just listen?

Exercises include:
  • Being comfortable with pausing whilst talking
  • Setting boundaries with others
  • Learning to assert yourself effectively
  • Erasing ambiguity with truthful and direct speech

Takeaway practice:

  • Journaling
Module  8

Stress Reduction

Module 8 incorporates the teachings from all previous modules to focus on values and self-care: participants are invited to reflect on what kind of person they want to be - both personally and in the workplace.

Exercises include:
  • How to notice unhealthy coping mechanisms that may shift you away from your values and who you want to be
  • How to take care of yourself to avoid stress and burnout
  • Meditation visualisation to reflect on values and self-identity
  • Writing exercise on key learnings and takeaways from the course
  • A letter to yourself
