Julie’s desire to create a program around meditation stems from the personal experience of founder, and busy entrepreneur, Julie Durant. Having had her own meditation practice for over 15 years she says
“I couldn’t help but notice how much less reactive I became when stressful situations arose during my workday. The simple practice of being mindful and taking time to observe my surroundings proved to really work for me.”
She continues, but it was tough to find the guidance I needed without all the religious attachments. I had to really search and spend a lot of money and time to source a good fit for me, I was lucky I had the resources to do that. I knew not everyone had that luxury. Having built numerous corporate workshops and events since 2008, including accredited courses for banks and the finance community over the past decade, Julie realized there was a community that would benefit from a training camp to help them shift their own reaction to stress and change.
