Working

Sarete offers a chance to focus on self-improvement and life-skills in the workplace by “working it out,” while building practices for problem solving and conflict resolution. Physical activity will focus on centering and rejuvenation in the context of stress to allow energy to be reserved for goal-oriented action.

The workplace can become a place where you don’t feel like yourself.  You feel as if others see you only as what you do and don’t do for the job.  Centering brings you and the work-you back on the same page to increase your capacity to contribute your unique qualities to the workplace.

    Clear your head, relax your body, move skillfully.
    Focus breathing, mind, and self
    • Focus breathing to establish a physical equilibrium.
    • Focus your mind and body on receiving rather then presenting and processing information.
    • Focus feelings, thoughts, and actions toward “be-ing” present and in the moment.
    Align posture, muscles, and intention.
    • Align posture to establish able physical structure.
    • Align muscles to reduce residual effort and tension.
    • Align what you are doing and not doing by coordinating your mind, body, and structure toward a present intention.
    Coordinate action, movement, and expression
    • Coordinate action and motivation with shared goals.
    • Coordinate movements and muscles with complimentary mechanics.

Stress and conflict are natural in any work environment.  Practices that reduce the impact of stress and promote positive energy allow the work that you do to be more productive and less draining.
