Epigenetics of Well-being – A mindfulness Experience Into Emotional Intelligence

“Born at Google, based on neuroscience”

This relaxed yet refreshing session uses mindfulness and neuroscience to give insights to some of the essential & necessary emotional intelligence future skills. After the workshop we will explore and exchange thoughts on the epigenetics of well-being. 

Epigenetics supports to reveal processes of inherited characteristics and environmental influences. Those shape the individual epigenetic variety of mechanisms that affect both brain structure and function involved in neurodevelopment, neuronal activity, and neurocognitive processes. In the last few years we have learned that where we are, what we have inherited, what we experience and what we do, think, and pay attention to impacts and changes the structure and function of the brain. We know that by a change of lifestyle we can switch more than 500 health-promoting genes on and switch off approx. 200 cancer-causing ones. Factors that have an impact on cancer-causing genes are stress resilience, transgenerational epigenetic inheritance, ACEs, nutrition, somatic or inheritance mutations… Development of cancer, cancer prevention, disease treatments may alter the pathogenetic or salutogenic expression. 

“In modern lifestyle societies, chronic stress has been associated with the pathogenesis of many diseases, including cancer. Chronic stress results in the activation of specific signaling pathways in cancer cells and the tumor microenvironment, leading to tumor growth and progression. Elucidation of these pathways is essential for the development of novel approaches to block the deleterious effects of stress biology on cancer growth and metastasis.” Impact of stress on cancer metastasis – Future Oncology 

It is a vast field and what we know for sure is that the health-related quality of life in patients with cancer & the well-being of cancer patients is impacted by the emotional quotient of those patients. 

What about the well-being of the leading researchers, physicians, scientists & health professionals? 

Neuroscience gave us a whole new perspective on how to talk about topics “too soft” for business including the importance of the well-being of health care professionals & pioneers. You know the future key for success lies in the increase of performance and productivity while being well, the reduction of sick days, the enhancement of conflict management and collaboration and in strengthening resilience by nurturing psychological safety in the workplace. 

Mindfulness and emotional intelligence (E.I.) are key capabilities that anyone can learn and develop. We will have an interactive SIY keynote workshop which has been originally developed at Google and is based on neuroscience and a afterworkshop exchange on the epigenetics of well-being. 

This workshop uses mindfulness and neuroscience to give insights to some essential emotional intelligence skills necessary for leadership. The program has been offered in over 100 cities around the world to tens of thousands of leaders in business. Companies such as​ ​Google, DentsuE, SAP, Salesforce, many start-ups and many more have adopted this training in-house.

Results from recent participants showed amazing benefits:

● 89% reported an improved ability to ​reduce stress

● 91% reported enhanced ​clarity of mind

● 79% reported increased ​energy levels

● 91% reported improved ​ability to remain calm

● 85% reported an increased ability to ​connect with others

E.I. future skills are essential to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The benefits go much further than just the beneficial economic growth factors. Four of the UN SDGs that are important for Healthcare-Professionals to consider are the following: 

Goal 3: Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development.

Goal 8: Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.

Goal 9: Build a resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Goal 17: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

The E.I. skills support the culture of teams, increase well-being, support greater productivity and are supporters for a better world
