About Mindfulness Works For Organisations



Mindfulness Works For Organisations is a trans-Tasman organisation comprising the region’s largest group of experienced mindfulness educators.

We operate in an environment of increased productivity and decreased resourcing. Organisations are delivering more with less. Mental health issues are common both within and outside of the workplace. Value is increasingly put on the growth and wellbeing of staff in the delivery of organisation objectives.

  • Courses and training for absolute beginners, who have never done mindfulness, meditation or even anything like it before
  • Modern language and down-to-earth situations to illustrate how mindfulness works
  • Experiential learning – so people actually experience mindfulness, not just ‘learn’ about it

  • Competitively-priced courses, making mindfulness as accessible as possible for both the general public and workplaces
  • The option to supplement training with the latest technology, such as the CALM, AM and Awakened Mind mindfulness apps

Helping organisations to improve their productivity through mindfulness is our passion. Supporting the resilience and wellbeing of employees generates high performaning teams and thriving organisations.

A selection of client feedback for Mindfulness Works For Organisations

The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand strongly endorses mindfulness as a useful way to improve positive mental health and resilience. We recommend Stephen Archer (MWFO) as an experienced mindfulness practitioner.

Hugh Norriss, Director of Policy & Development

 Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand

Stephen (MWFO) is a terrific teacher – insightful, patient and inspiring. I truly believe that the practice of mindfulness is completely relevant in a work setting – busy people in the workplace, especially those charged with leading teams or solving thorny problems (and that would be all of us!) need to find a way to bring the signal to noise ratio into balance. Mindfulness helps mightily with this, and will encourage you to bring a sense of ease into your interactions with people and in the way you seek solutions or insight.

We have used the services of Stephen Archer (MWFO) to help us to develop our Wellness Programme and Policy at Air New Zealand Cargo. During the period of programme development and in conducting training of our workforce, I have found Stephen Archer to be knowledgeable and professional in his approach to the subject of wellness and workplace stress. Stephen has presented to two target audiences, namely half day sessions for managers and 90 minute sessions for shop floor employees, both of which have been well received.

Jon (MWFO) provided two Mindfulness sessions to some of our staff, as part of QLD Mental Health Week. These sessions received unanimously positive feedback. We are keen to get Jon back to provide mindfulness training to our Peer Support Officers in the near future. Jon was the consummate professional with a great sense of humour and unfaltering calmness – it was clear that he really practises what he preaches when he was able to improvise without a hitch when our technology wouldn’t allow him to use his laptop/PowerPoint. Thank you again Jon for your time, knowledge and expertise.

Pip Walker, Psychologist/Senior Human Services Officer

Queensland Police Service

I have engaged Jon Unal (MWFO) on a number of occasions to facilitate mindfulness sessions in a corporate environment. Our teams have always enjoyed the sessions and have benefited both personally and professionally. Jon has successfully tailored his sessions with the audience in mind. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone looking to bring mindfulness into the workplace.

Elizabeth Tully

HR Business Partner, Sanofi Consumer Healthcare

Jon (MWFO) delivered a combined presentation and workshop for our Bachelors and Masters students as part of a subject. The presentation fitted right into the topic with an extensive insight into mindfulness. After his presentation the classroom dynamics changed. Students become more focused, more sensitive to discussion topics and more compassionate with each other while interacting in classroom activities. Jon’s presentation was incredibly informative and entertaining with easy-to-digest yet thought-provoking material. He is really engaging with different age groups and finds the voice with people from all different ethnic backgrounds. Mindfulness is a missing concept in education. It should be taught and practiced on a daily basis by students and teaching professionals. Looking forward to Jon’s next seminar!
