Mindfulness for Organisations

What we offer?


Openground offers quality, competitive and flexible training solutions drawing on an experienced team of teachers across Australia.  Whether your interest is in increasing performance and effectiveness, reducing stress, or building resilience, empathy and emotional intelligence, team building or leadership development, we can address all levels of training needs in business and government - from frontline workers to executives and leaders.  


Mindfulness can be transformative for both individuals and organisations depending on how embedded it is in the organisational culture and this can be a delicate matter. We would be delighted to consult with you as to how best integrate mindfulness into all levels of the organisation in an effective and sustainable way. This may include stand alone interventions or weaving them into existing training and development programs.

Mindfulness is a "must-have": a way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress.

What People Are Saying

I have learnt a lot about myself through the MBSR course. Coming from a place of feeling very disconnected to myself, I now feel I am engaged and listening to what I need, which then has allowed me to handle what life has to offer in a positive way.

Since doing your course (Living with Wisdom and Compassion) my major transformation has been in my daily work as a family doctor. Instead of being the best doctor I can so that patients will admire me and appreciate me I am aware that I am regularly “putting myself in my patients shoes.” I want their lives to be better and their suffering to diminish. Whether that is through my doctoring or something not related to me is not relevant.

Understanding mindfulness has changed my life.

It was great to be able to explore the strength of compassion, both internally and externally, through Living with Wisdom and Compassion. This course builds on what MBSR began. While it had its challenging moments, I came away from it feeling stress-relief thanks to my heart softening yet strengthening. And from the ability to see that even though we are all unique individuals, and we may express ourselves in wildly different ways, we all have the same needs. The better I can get at understanding those needs the more effective I can be in helping myself and others. I highly recommend this course to everyone.
