Inner Productivity Intensive Workshop – with Chris Edgar and Rosy Moon

- Aidan C., San Francisco, California
Are You Fully Giving Your Gifts To The World?
There’s no doubt that you’ve got a lot to offer. You’re not just smart and creative — you genuinely care about people, and you have a unique vision for manifesting that creativity and caring in the world.
So why isn’t it happening?
Why, when you sit down to bring that grand vision to life, do you find yourself wasting time on e-mail and social media? Why do you keep choosing to do minor chores, instead of work that really matters? Why do you keep arriving at the end of the workday and realizing, to your dismay, that nothing important got done?
I think we’ve all asked ourselves these questions at some point, and the answer often seems maddeningly unclear. What is clear, however, is that the usual organization and time management literature doesn’t shed much light on it.
Some people recommend making yourself “just do it” — but, as I think you’ve experienced, trying to force yourself to work usually just creates more resistance inside. Others offer neat tricks and “hacks” for organizing your e-mail, color-coding your folders, and so on. But as I think you also know, those tricks are useless if you aren’t focused and motivated enough to put them into practice.
What This Workshop Offers You
Since you’re here, you probably know that I wrote a book called Inner Productivity: A Mindful Path to Efficiency and Enjoyment in Your Work. Inner Productivity, which Getting Things Done author David Allen calls “a great read and a useful guidebook for turning the daily grind into something much more interesting and engaging,” is all about learning to allow – rather than resist — the thoughts and sensations that disrupt our focus.
In this full-day workshop, we put the book’s ideas and techniques into practice. You’ll come out of the workshop with an increased ability to focus on your work, a stronger sense of mission, and a deep-seated knowledge that you’ve got what it takes to face the challenges that come up in what you do.
I’ll be joined by yoga instructor and course leader Rosy Moon Schlussel. Basing our approach on meditation, yoga and other mindfulness practices that have improved people’s lives for thousands of years, we’ll help you notice, and transform, the patterns of thinking and behavior keeping you from contributing to the world in the way you know is possible.
This workshop is unlike any other seminar on organization or time management. I’ve designed the course to be small — limited to ten people — to make sure each person gets the individual attention they need, and the breakthrough they want. This won’t be a lecture — you’ll be diving right into exercises that make you aware of the places where you’re limiting yourself.
I’d recommend this workshop to people who are ready to take a deep look at what’s really holding them back in their work. If that’s what you’re interested in, this course will radically change the way you think about and relate to what you do.

About Chris Edgar
Chris began his career as a corporate lawyer. He got involved in mindfulness practices like meditation, yoga, qi gong and tai chi when looking for techniques to help him let go of the stress of his job. At first, he thought he could only do these practices “on his own time” at home. But as Chris got deeper into these practices, he realized there were forms of meditation, movement, breathing and so on he could do in real time, without even leaving his desk, whenever he wanted more focus and motivation.
Inspired to teach these methods to stressed-out professionals, Chris received training in transformational coaching, mindfulness meditation, hypnotherapy, and other modalities. He began working with people one-on-one, and speaking to groups, about how to adapt spiritual practices to our working lives. Chris also wrote the acclaimed book Inner Productivity: A Mindful Path to Efficiency and Enjoyment in Your Work, which Getting Things Done author David Allen calls “a great read and a useful guidebook for turning the daily grind into something much more interesting and engaging.”
Chris received his B.A. from Haverford College, and his law degree from Stanford University School of Law. Chris’s articles have appeared in, among other publications, Balance, Balanced Living, EdgeLife, LivingNow, Mystic Pop, New Age Journal, New Renaissance, Self-Improvement, WellBeing and Wisdom.

You don’t need me to tell you how much you have to offer, or what a tragedy it would be if people never got the benefit of your talents and abilities. You’ve known all that — and probably suffered over it — for a long time. If you’re ready to deeply explore and move beyond what’s holding you back, I look forward to working with you.
Wishing you the best in your work and elsewhere,
