Speaking Topics
  • From Work-Life Balance to Doing-Being Balance

    We have talked about work-life balance for many years, but it is a redundant division. Most of us will find ourselves thinking about work when we are at home and on the other hand let ourselves be distracted by private matters when at work. This session is an invitation to become human beings again instead of human doings. It suggests finding a different kind of balance between actively achieving things on the one hand and finding time to rest, connect and heal on the other. This is how our nervous system is intended to work, but our modern busy lives rarely allow for us to maintain this balance. The result is chronic stress, poor performance, mistakes, burn out and generally poor mental well-being. This session will introduce the attendees to mindfulness and allow them to explore the right balance for them and how to make it happen it in their everyday life.

    Attendees will walk away with:

    • Insights into their autonomic nervous system and why it is important to maintain a balance between doing and being.
    • A practical understanding of how to bring intended mindful pauses into everyday life.
    • Personal reflections on what it takes for them to create better balance in their lives.
    • An introduction to and try-out of the Pause Practice that they will be able to practice after the session.

  • Diverse, not Divided: The mindful way to age-inclusion

    Are you a boomer or zoomer? We all love to make sense of a complicated world by placing ourselves and others into boxes. But stereotyping of any kind hinders corporation and innovation in organizations and limits the well-being and potential of the individual. The solution? It starts with awareness and ends with re-wiring our inner patterns of thoughts. Ideal for:

    • Organizations challenged by corporation across ages.
    • Organizations facing the changing demographics.
    • Teams looking to build stronger relationships focusing on we rather than me.
    • Anyone looking to stop internalized stereotypes limiting them.
    • Anyone wanting to support a more inclusive and compassionate work-environment.

  • Ageing Upwards - How To Stop Striving For Youth And Live In The Present Moment

    Congratulations! You have been given about 20 more years to live than your grandparents. How are you going to make the most of them? In this session the author of the book Ageing Upwards, Berit Lewis, shows that the story we so often tell ourselves about ageing – that it’s all downhill from 50 – is simply wrong. In fact, research reveals we are at our happiest aged 80! Combining her extensive experience in teaching mindfulness with her knowledge of how to live and age well, she reveals a simple framework that can help you make the most out of those extra years of living. Rather than wait for society to solve the challenges of longevity, she invites us to explore what each of us can do to take responsibility for our own life and ageing process. Attendees will walk away with:

    • An insight into the changing demographics of the world and the workplace and why it is important that we make some serious changes to how we structure our lives and think about ageing.
    • Awareness of how we are all ageist and how much that cost society and the individual ageing person in terms of money and well-being.

    • Practical insight into how mindfulness can help us embrace our age instead of adding extra suffering and pain to our lives by running away from it and trying to stay young.

    • Personal stories about how to navigate life after 50 with acceptance, self-compassion and mental flexibility.
    • Food for thoughts on how to stop thinking about retirement but rather "refirement"

  • Step out of your head! Focusing Inwards For Teambuilding and A Better Work Environment

    We talk a lot at work! We use our heads to analyse, solve problems, imagine and judge. But sometimes the answers needs to be found somewhere else. Especially when it comes to interpersonal relations and inner well-being. This session is an opportunity to step out of the head and connect with the body and the present moment. It allows the attendees to discover the nature of their thoughts, emotions and physical sensations, and as they learn new ways to relate to them, magic happens and they also start to relate differently to their colleagues. This session is teambuilding while turning focus inwards. It allows attendees to become more aware of how we are all alike as human beings instead of focusing on the things that separate us.

    Employees are people before employees and mindfulness can help us to truly see each other beyond any preconceived ideas or stereotypes. It can help us as individuals and as a team – and it can even be fun!

  • The Compassionate Way To Success

    Is high self-esteem the key to individual success? Research suggests otherwise. High self-esteem doesn't necessarily lead to better performance or greater success. Instead, success and well-being can be found in recognizing our common human experiences, including vulnerability, self-doubt, and failure. This session allows you to stop beating yourself up for secretly having self doubt.

    Some may question the value of "self-compassion" and "mindfulness", believing that self-criticism and pushing harder are the paths to success. However, these concepts are supported by scientific evidence, not just feel-good ideas. This session offers an evidence-based introduction to mindfulness and self-compassion, with practical exercises to help you develop these valuable skills.
