TLS #208: What I learned from a Google workshop about mindfulness + neurology

Today on the show, I’m sharing the takeaways I got from a Google created mindfulness workshop called Search Inside Yourself.

During the two day workshop in Sydney, they shared on the subjects of neurology, consciousness, and mindfulness from a personal and career perspective.

One of the things I loved about this program was the tips and ways they suggested bringing mindfulness into the corporate workplace… so if you are interested in mindfulness at work, you’ll want to tune in.

This episode is perfect for anyone interested in learning about how Google approaches mindfulness and neurology, or for anyone interested how to bringing mindfulness into a corporate environment.
