Description: Laurie will be speaking about the power of mindfulness and self-compassion with an intimate group of scientists and managers from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda Maryland. Laurie’s book, The Mindful Day: How to Find Focus, Calm and Joy From Morning to Evening, will be shared with the group of participants.
The Mindful Day is designed for busy professionals looking to integrate mindfulness into their daily lives, this step-by-step guide draws on contemplative practice, modern neuroscience, and leading psychology to bring peace and focus to the home, in the workplace, and beyond.
In the book, Founder of PurposeBlue and noted mindfulness expert, international teacher and business leader Laurie J. Cameron – a veteran of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, a Senior Fellow at the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being at George Mason, and 20-year mindfulness meditation practitioner- shows how to seamlessly weave mindfulness and compassion practices into your life. Timeless teachings, compelling science and straightforward exercises designed for busy schedules — from waking up to joy, the morning commute, to back-to-back meetings and evening dinners – show how mindfulness practice can help you navigate life’s complexity with mastery, clarity and ease. Cameron’s practical wisdom and concrete how-to steps will help you make the most of the present moment, creating a roadmap for inner peace – and a life of deeper purpose and joy.
