Belfast — The University of Maine will offer a two-day workshop focused on mindful leadership April 5 and 26 at the Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave.

The Mindful Leadership workshop will introduce participants to practical ways to bring mindfulness to daily work life. At the workshop, to be held from 8:30 a.m. to  3:30 p.m. each day, attendees will practice mindfulness meditation, learn competencies of mindful leadership, and discuss strategies for being calmer, more clear-minded and emotionally aware in the workplace.

Based on the corporate mindfulness work of author Rasmus Hougaard, “One Second Ahead; Enhance Your Performance at Work with Mindfulness,” the workshop will introduce tools and techniques for implementing mindfulness at work to enhance focus, clarity, relationships and results.

Program facilitator Mary Doyle, M.A., R.N., earned a graduate degree in organizational development from Emerson College, a bachelor’s degree in human nutrition from the University of Maine and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Southern Maine.

Doyle is qualified as a mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) teacher by the University of California, San Diego Center for Mindfulness. She has additional MBSR teacher training from Bangor University in the United Kingdom. Doyle is the owner of Mindfulness to Work, a private practice that provides training, coaching and leadership training based on the principles of mindfulness.

The cost of the two-day workshop is $215, with need-based scholarships available. A light breakfast, refreshments, lunch and materials are included. A UMaine certificate in Mindful Leadership is awarded upon completion. CEUs are available.
