According to the W.H.O. Stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century. It costs US businesses $300 billion per year, and Canadian businesses ~$30 billion. Meditation has been studied extensively in clinical trials, and been shown to have many benefits. Many multi-national corporations have meditation programs, and can testify to its positive impact on the bottom line.
Meditation can increase your concentration, help you relax, improve your physical health, mental and emotional well-being.
Meditation benefits people in stressful jobs because it teaches you to still your busy mind and focus your scattered thoughts. This creates peace, happiness and relaxation.
As well as stress reduction, meditation alleviates depression, increases mental clarity and reduces incidence of stress related illness, like heart disease, low immunity and high blood pressure.

Depending on the time allocated, attendees are taught 2-3 techniques. They will have time to practice them during class and ask questions.
You can book a one hour - half-day session.
The longer workshop includes demonstrations & role play to simulate the work environment so the group can incorporate what they learn into real life situations.
Regular meditation supports your mental, physical and emotional health, but finding the time can be hard when you have a busy career. Participants will receive support to create a meditation habit that enhances their lives, be guided to use tools to reduce stress, manage overwhelm, increase your focus and creativity. Classes & drop ins can be delivered live via webinar or in person.
This 8 week course addresses work-life challenges in a safe supportive environment. It is appropriate for a groups who are committed to their personal development through meditation. Students learn foundation techniques and build on them as the series progresses. A certificate is provided on completion of all classes. This option is best when you have a dedicated group who can commit to attending every week for the duration of the course.
This ongoing drop-in meditation provides a weekly meditation experience. The focus is on using breath work and simple foundation meditation techniques for stress relief, calming the mind and emotions and 3 R's (re-setting, re-energizing & re-balancing). This option works when your group can't commit to coming every week. Yet you want the benefits of meditation to be available for them. This way they learn tools to support their health and well-being, but it doesn't matter if their hectic schedule might causes them to miss a session here & there.
You may also request a workshop for your private group that can be customized to your needs. Private tuition can be arranged for those not wanting to participate in a group or who wish to focus on a specific area of growth.

Lesley did an excellent meditation workshop for our group that was experiential, interactive & tailored to our needs. Her techniques applied to the challenges our leaders face & she gave practical suggestions on how to use meditation to enhance their performance & daily lives. The feedback from our group was tremendously positive & I highly recommend her as a speaker & an expert in her field who understands the needs of the corporate world.

I’ve now been booking Lesley through this year & next for a variety of exciting workshops. It’s been wonderful having her come in & do workshops on a variety of topics, as the Seniors get pretty bored always having medical guest speakers. I highly recommend Lesley as she is always a joy & lots of fun!

You held the audience spellbound with your talk and wonderful guided meditation, it clarified the reasons & benefits of meditation & got the point across that the practice of meditation does wonders for the body & soul. As usual, you also gave much joy & encouragement to all & had the audience in the palm of your hand.
