Search Inside Yourself At The Garrison Institute

What's It Like to Take Google's Mindfulness Training?

If you've ever wondered what it might be like to work for Google, or more specifically, to take the mindfulness training for Google employees, wittily known as "Search Inside Yourself: Mindfulness Based Emotional Intelligence," you'll soon have the chance. I helped develop SIY training along with Google's "Jolly Good Fellow" Chade Meng Tan, Google's "Chief Evangelist for Brand Marketing" Gopi Kallayil and Norman Fisher, former Abbott of the San Francisco Zen Center. Today, SIY is taking on a life of its own and increasingly being offered to the public beyond Google, and it's part of a broader trend towards workplace mindfulness that many innovative organizations are embracing. If it hasn't touched your organization yet, chances are it will before long.
