Mindfulness is the faculty of sustaining voluntary attention continuously without forgetfulness or distraction. With this awareness, we can understand the workings of our minds and make wise choices about where we focus our attention.
With mindfulness, we become aware of our thoughts, emotions, and physical state. As a result, we can change the habitual patterns that undermine our happiness and success and lead to unhealthy behaviors. Ultimately, we use this awareness to bring more kindness, compassion, and joy into our lives, thus creating a more harmonious and peaceful world.
Elizabeth Prather has introduced to mindfulness and meditation over 20 years ago, and she integrated them into her work environments with great success. She has more than 15 years of leadership experience in health care management, non-profit, and travel. Her areas of expertise have included managed care provider services operations, successfully working in fast-paced, rapidly growing organizations, training, customer service, strategic and operational healthcare consulting, and travel management.
Elizabeth is an experienced teacher of mindfulness, both for individuals and within organizations. She is passionate about bringing mindfulness into businesses to cultivate environments where individuals can thrive and perform at their very best. Elizabeth's Mindfulness at Work programs integrates her deep mindfulness practice and business acumen to ensure sustainable results for clients. In addition, Elizabeth brings her expertise to organizations looking for improved performance and well-being for their leaders and employees committed to improving employee retention and engagement.
In addition, she mentors stressed and burned out professional women looking for more calm, purpose, and balance in their lives. With a deep love of nature and travel, Elizabeth leads immersive experiences into the wilderness and abroad to help inspire and uplift you, using mindfulness as a core element of the journeys.
Elizabeth divided her time between work and immersion into mindfulness and meditation through learning and extended retreats in more recent years. Elizabeth engaged in a three-year silent meditation retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition from 2010-2012, a transformative experience. During that retreat, it became clear that she should share the benefits of mindfulness and meditation with others, especially those working in stressful business environments.
Our C7 microlearning series is focused on how to elevate your career through short training modules. The micro-learnings are bite-sized and actionable. Our participants' goal is to "take action" 1-3 immediate actions after an event. This is in a peer setting where participants help hold each other accountable.
