Mindful : February 2019
Top of Mind Mindfulness meets baking Just like with medi- tation practice, research has found baking can help reduce anxiety and increase well- being. So why not mix—or knead, or braid—the two together? Baker Ian Waterland, who worked in health and social care for 28 years before changing careers, is leading Mindful Bread workshops out of his bakery in Leicestershire, England. The workshops will offer instruction in bread baking alongside guided practices in engag- ing the senses and mindful breathing. Salesforce sup- ports mindful- ness for kids Software giant Salesforce has made mindfulness a central theme in its philanthropy. The company, which is based in San Francisco, has pledged $15.5 million to two Bay Area school districts to bolster computer science programs, train teachers, and suppor t mindful- ness training for students.

In October 2018, to launch its par tnership with nonprofit Smil- ing Mind, Virgin Australia hosted a one-time “medita- tion flight.” Virgin’s founder Sir Rich- ard Branson, VIP passengers, and company employ- ees meditated at 30,000 feet while being treated to hot towel service and hand mas- sages.

Encour- aged by these results, the UK College of Policing is funding an eight- week mindfulness trial for 1,500 officers, aiming to improve officers’ listening skills, firearms handling, and management of high-adrenaline confrontations. Nerys Thomas, head of research at the college, told the Guardian that if the positive results continue the program may be rolled out to all forces in England and Wales.
