Business Meditation Training

Mindfulness - non-judgemental present moment attention training - has been shown by a growing number of studies to have beneficial effects on health, productivity and team dynamics. Corporate mindfulness and meditation training is now used by many large companies such as Google, Apple, Virgin Atlantic and Unilever (the last two have been clients). Mindfulness at work helps people be healthier, happier, smarter and more efficient; and it can be trained in relatively short periods of time in standard corporate environments.
