My name is Joy Jordan. I'm an experienced, flexible teacher who tailors mindfulness programs to each business. I live and work in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin. I'll meet you and your workplace right where you are.
60- or 90-Minute Introductory Session
In an introductory session, I define mindfulness, discuss the science and benefits, guide short awareness exercises, give suggestions for everyday practice, and provide space for questions. If the time frame is elongated, I present ways to handle difficult circumstances, cultivate positive experiences, and have fruitful conversations. I adjust to the room, sharing salient topics for the group. Active practice—engagement with mindfulness—is an important part of my teaching.
My 5-week course—delivered in the workplace—begins with an introduction to mindfulness, formal instruction on attention training, and suggestions for informal practice that can be applied in daily life. The classes build to include exercises in active listening, working with difficult emotion, and cultivating positive experience. Each class ends with small yet important assignments. The elongated time frame lets employees fully engage and form new habits. (Can be shortened to 3 or 4 weeks.)
Weekly Meditation sessions
It's helpful for employees to take an intentional break during the day. They take unconscious breaks—checking phone, reading news, looking at Facebook—but these don't refresh their energy or their minds. Meditation is a mind training. It provides both ease and focus, which let workers re-engage with projects from a fresh perspective. A 30- or 45-minute weekly meditation can boost morale and energy.
Supplementary Offerings (including staff retreats)
I'm a flexible teacher with much experience. I create mindfulness classes and retreats specifically for your workplace. I can also supplement your current programming. The applications of mindfulness are vast. I'll meet your business right where it is. Let me know your needs.
Business leaders benefit from meditation and mindfulness, yet they may need confidential one-on-one sessions to practice deeply and authentically. I meet with people where they're comfortable, either in or out of the workplace.
Before scheduling a mindfulness event, it’s important that I understand your workplace and you meet me. Please contact me for an in-person or phone meeting, where we can discuss options, logistics, and fees. There's so much possibility for mindfulness within a business.
