Japan America Society of Southern California Turns to New York-Based Leaders for Work-From-Home Environments

Mindful Ways to Work from Home: A Blueprint for Your Space and Soul for Focus Amidst COVID-19

Wednesday, June 24 from 1:00 pm until 2:00 p.m.

Virtual Webinar hosted by the Japan America Society of Southern California

Suggested Donation: $25

Do you work from home? Are you happy, healthy, and productive there? The New Normal of our work environment involves flexible workplaces, including work-from-home. Companies like it for its agility, and people love it for their work-life balance. Yet we still feel lost in navigating this new conjuncture of our personal and professional lives.

To that end, the Japan America Society of Southern California addresses working from home during COVID-19.

Space and Mind in the Work Environment

Through this webinar, two leaders in the fields of space and mind within the work environment present mindful ways to work from home. Yoko Kawai, PhD, is a Lecturer at Yale School of Architecture and co-founder of Mirai Work Space, a New York-based team of architects and consultants who bring “space for well-being” to workspaces. She will discuss the relationship between space and mind and how you can design and adjust your home environment for a healthy and productive work-life. Julia Colangelo, DSW, LCSW, Adjunct Professor at Columbia University and founder of Sea Change Wellness, LLC, will introduce the principles and techniques of Mindfulness and Flow to remain productive and cope with unique psychological challenges you face while working from home.
