Custom Programs for Organizations and Businesses

The UVA Mindfulness Center offers custom mindfulness programs for organizations and groups.  These can range from a single lecture or workshop to a full eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction or Mindful Leadership program.

The Mindfulness Center offered a virtual eight-week Introduction to Mindfulness course for FM Expressions, a company with facilities in Gordonsville, Virginia and Secaucus, New Jersey.  Scott White, CEO of FM Expressions, commented about the program:

“I was appreciative of the willingness to tailor a program around content, time of day, and class size that matched our exact needs.  The instructor’s enthusiasm and personal connection quickly built a trusting environment.  It led to open sharing and better relationships among key people in our company.  It was also interesting to hear the very diverse experiences on what individuals were taking with them from our eight-week experience.

We had 14 important team members commit to 1 hour during the work week over the course of a couple of months.  We started the program in the midst of a challenging time in our business.  An option could have been to postpone.  The choice to stay the course proved invaluable.  There is no better time to focus on Mindfulness than when you need it most.  I am very confident we reduced the amount of anxiety and stress in the business by having leaders who were more aware.”
