Startup professionals are being confronted by a wholly different way of operating and producing value for their organizations. This new way of engaging with personal and professional reality evokes resistance which then leads to a sense of pervasive struggle.
In our discussion we will address the notion that unorthodox arenas demand unorthodox solutions. The modern professional is not a monastic and has an array of responsibilities that don't always accommodate long periods of sitting meditation.
We can explore mindfulness methods that get us from sensations associated with the ability to stay alive (fight, flight, freeze, please) to tolerating contradictory experiencing and uncertainty. Finally, we can discuss the value of the practice of unconditional kindness to the full range of our experience.
