On May 21st, The indigo project’s head psychologist, Mary Hoang, was asked to be a part of the Graduate Impact Day at General Electric in North Sydney, held to inspire their best and brightest young graduate team.
She ran an interactive workshop on using Mindfulness to handle stress, and gave the eager graduates some tools to help them get their shit together. About 10 graduates attended in Sydney, and another 15 to 20 joined us via screen broadcast through Telepresence in Melbourne and Perth. All the grads were enthusiastic to learn about neuroplasticity, as well as Mindfulness Meditation and its many benefits. Graduates enjoyed activities like simple introductory meditations and Mindful Eating exercises.
Overall, the workshop was really well-received by all the attendees who gave us great feedback and absolutely loved Mary – a sure sign that there is a place for Mindfulness and The indigo project in the corporate world.
