The Kdejones Group Provides Training and Facilitation

In Mindfulness and Breath Awarness

We specialize in facilitating trainings, workshops, and retreats for companies and organizations that want to help their employees increase their productivity, improve their communication, and manage anger, conflict and stress. Our group of experienced trainers facilitate mindfulness, body movement, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, and negotiation trainings. 

                                           Mindfulness training can help you make better decisions about what is happening in the present,                              so you can make better choices for the future.


What We Do

Corporate Training

The KdeJones Group provides instruction, practice, and discussion on how to recognize, manage, and respond to inner and inter-personal stress, anger, and conflict through the application of mindfulness and conflict intervention techniques.

Participants learn:

  • to increase awareness of personal and inter-personal anger and stress responses.
  • to learn techniques to reduce personal and inter-personal anger and stress.
  • to provide practice in managing inter-personal conflict situations.
  • to identify personalities and team dynamics.
  • to learn skills for successful conflict intervention and de-escalation.

The KdeJones Group uses mind, body, and breath awareness training as its foundation for all other courses. Mindfulness, breath awareness, and simple body movement stretches the muscles, enhances breath flow, increases concentration, and allows participants to focus their minds.

Participants will learn how to respond, rather than to react, in stressful situations through discussion and exercises. Through an understanding of different individual conflict types and team personalities, participants can identify both the strengths and weaknesses of different conflict interventions.

Who We Are

The KdeJones Group is a group of trainers and teachers who specialize in conflict management, breath-awareness, body movement and meditation training for groups and individuals. They have expertise in providing student-centered teaching that responds to the unique needs of the participants in each training.
