Victoria, BC, September 22, 2015: Pretio Interactive, MindWell Canada and Power to Be are proud to present the Mindfulness Victoria Seminar, taking place on Thursday, October 1. This special one-day event will be hosted at Fort Tectoria in downtown Victoria.

The Mindfulness Seminar is a customized workshop that teaches individuals how to live a less stressful, more joyful and connected life. Studies have shown that through this training people have reported a significant effect on work performance, creativity and conflict management.

Local technology company, Pretio Interactive, decided to help organize the event after CEO Jim Hayhurst heard about the benefits of Mindfulness for companies, especially in the tech sector. “Our employees live in a fast-paced, multi-screen environment. Knowing that the world’s most successful companies like Apple and LinkedIn use mindfulness made it an easy decision to see how we might utilize it at Pretio.”

The exclusive Mindfulness Victoria event is already sold out, but a lucky community member has the opportunity to win two free tickets to the seminar plus lunch in downtown Victoria. To enter, visit www.mindfulnessvictoria.com. The winner will be notified by Monday, September 28.
