Who We've Helped The Team Resources Blogs Guided Meditations Business Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace Breathworks Home Become a mindful workplace What we do Mindfulness is the key to mental clarity.Mental clarity is the key to everything else. As a national leader in mindfulness training, we’ve been running programmes for individuals, companies and public sector bodies since 2001, with advisory support from senior clinicians and academics from UCL and Kings College London. What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is simply knowing what is happening in your mind, while it is happening. Many of our thoughts are accurate and useful—and many are not. Yet, in the heat of the moment it is often difficult to tell which is which. Breathworks courses develop your ability to step back from the flow of thoughts and emotions—rather than getting swept up in it. This clarity of mind allows you to make better decisions, stay calm, and act more effectively. What are the Benefits?
