ABOUT THE MEDITATIO FOUNDATION
The Meditatio Foundation teaches meditation, both for personal well-being and — thanks to meditation’s positive impact on relationships— for advancing the common good in organizations and society at large. Meditation is a practice found in all historic traditions around the world and whose advantages are now increasingly documented by scientific studies.
WHY MEDITATION MAKES SENSE IN THE WORKPLACE
Leaders who meditate focus more effectively on key tasks, integrate their personal values with the organization’s mission, and avoid distractions.
Business is stressful. But meditators learn to deal with it systematically, mitigating it’s toxic effects in a healthy, simple and inexpensive way.
When your whole team meditates, they respond appropriately rather than react thoughtlessly to each other — and to other key stakeholders.
