New Mindfulness Workshop Series!

Take it from a monk! “It’s time to invest in yourself,” says Craig Marshall Mindful “U” Co-Founder, 35-year yoga monk, and educator at Mindful “U”.

Mindful “U” is offering a series of 4-week workshops focused on specific topics such as mindfulness, leadership, communication, and stress reduction.

Join our upcoming webinar, “Catching The AI Wave – How to Best Prepare for This New Digital Age,” on Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at 1:30 pm PST. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more accessible now than ever. The question is no longer IF AI will change the way we work and live, but HOW.

In this one-hour free webinar Craig Marshall, Mindful “U” Co-Founder and 35-year yoga monk, will be joined by Samy Montechristo, one of the top global expert creators on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence & the Metaverse (AIM). Samy has produced thousands of AI metaverse destinations in the past 20 years including a virtual continent the size of England (which was featured by IBM at the 2007 consumer electronics show).

Craig and Samy will drill down into the personal and professional implications in everyday life – from how we work and live, to how we see ourselves in this brave new world.

The webinar will begin with a short meditation and then Craig and Samy will discuss:

  • What is AI
  • Mindfulness and AI
  • Managing fear in a time of transformation
  • The importance of becoming a life-long learner
