In this talk we will explore a path to finding real happiness at work. Despite the many hours we tend to spend working, that arena of our lives may not be the source of great fulfillment or meaning. We will look at the qualities that can turn that around, including mindfulness, compassion, resiliency, integrity, and open awareness, and learn practices that help cultivate each of these. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, the talk will consist of a guided meditation, and time for questions and answers.
