Room: Main Shrine Room

So often our places of work reflect the divisiveness, fear, and suffering experienced by society at large, and become places of pain for us. Yet, what if it were possible to transform our experience of the workplace through practices of mindfulness and love? How can we skillfully engage with our colleagues, tasks, and work environments in a way that promotes well-being and success? Join us for meditation followed by a rich discussion led by Shastri Gayle Van Gils, author of Happier at Work: The Power of Love to Transform the Workplace. Copies of her highly-acclaimed and instructive book will be available for purchase.
