Where: SPIDI, Franz-Josef-Kai 27/10, 1010 Vienna
Dear Participants to the WCN Mentoring Programme 2011/2012!
We would like to cordially invite you to a group meeting for mentors and mentees.
Our goal is to keep you motivated, inspired and committed! At this meeting we will share and discuss ideas around framing the mentoring relationship as well as maintaining the momentum, i.e., the do's and don'ts of mentoring, asking powerful questions, giving constructive feedback and wrapping up the relationship. If you have a topic or question in advance of the meeting that you feel may help us prepare the agenda, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: due to technical reasons, we are unable to buzz people into the SPIDI building on the weekend; thus, one of us will be down on the sidewalk to let you into the building. Please arrive promptly between 13.45 and 14.00.
We're looking forward to seeing you all there.

Training Workshop 1: Meditation and Focusing, 6 to 9 pm
Dr. Lyly Rojas de Knaus
Meditation is not only for Indian gurus or Tibetan monks. Even control-freaks and power-chunkies can benefit from meditation (and from a very powerful technique called focusing which Lyly will also introduce). An ever-changing world, constant work overload and the crazy speed of our lives are just some of the aspects that make up stress and keep us from leading the life we want, deep down. Bring:…..(the knot in your stomach that stress creates?) **Note: Groups will range from 7 (minimum) to 10 participants. The fee is ATS 850,- or EURO 62 for members (non-members pay an additional ATS 138,- or an additional EURO 10).
