Join the emerging movement of companies integrating evidence-based mindfulness in their workplaces.
Workplace studies prove that emotional competencies enhance performance, leadership effectiveness, and well-being.
Attention is the fundamental energy of the mind. How we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.
Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that underpins the inner factors of growth: self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who attends Search Inside Yourself events?
People join Search Inside Yourself for many reasons, including personal development and experiencing the program before bringing it to their company.
Consultants, coaches and therapists also enroll in SIY to evaluate whether to adopt the principles in their own work. Some attendees are new to mindfulness and meditation, while others are longtime practitioners.
What should I expect at SIY events?
A public program is an interactive two-day, in-person training, followed by four weeks of recommended peer-to-peer practices to sustain and integrate learning and self-directed growth from the inside out. The program includes sessions on mindfulness (the science of being present), self-awareness (understanding your thoughts, emotions and habits), self-management (skillfully managing your impulses and reactions), motivation (aligning your values and work), empathy (understanding others’ feelings and experiences) and leadership (influencing with compassion).
