Sills Cummis & Gross Offers Mindfulness Workshop

April 18, 2016

More and more businesses are training their employees in mindfulness because of the benefits, both personal and professional, that meditation can achieve.  Now Sills Cummis & Gross is bringing mindfulness training to the Firm. 

On April 20, the Firm is hosting a Mindfulness Workshop for its attorneys.  The workshop will be led by Dean Sluyter, the acclaimed author of Natural Meditation:  A Guide to Effortless Meditative Practice.  Meditation training for lawyers may seem unusual for a law firm to offer, but lawyers deal in strategies and evidence, and the evidence is in that meditation promotes productivity, creativity and stress management.

Marcia Jeffers, Chief Marketing Officer of the Firm, stated: “Law firms tend to be behind corporate America when it comes to progressive ideas.  I’ve read that corporate America is definitely on the “mindfulness bandwagon” and has incorporated mindfulness training – companies such as Google, Facebook, Genentech, Aetna, P&G, Nike, HBO, Kaiser Permanente, General Mills and Apple, to name a few.  We feel it’s time for us to jump on that bandwagon, as we believe it will greatly benefit our attorneys.”
