the corporate program
The business world is abuzz with meditation and mindfulness. The impact of stress on the health of employees, their performance and the bottom line (estimated to be costing Australian employers $10.1b in absenteeism and presenteeism), is now widely recognised. There is no longer any doubt about the litany of benefits and the impact that meditation can have, and corporations such as Google, Apple and the Harvard Business School are embracing meditation and mindfulness as effective tools to enrich their workplace, innovate and get ahead in their industries. It's no surprise to find that the Harvard Business Review now asserts that meditation is essential to effective leadership, citing scientific studies that demonstrate meditation is a "way to keep our brains healthy, to support self-regulation and effective decision-making capabilities, and to protect ourselves from toxic stress"; with our ability to self-regulate determining to what extent we can “purposefully direct attention and behavior, suppress inappropriate knee-jerk responses, and switch strategies flexibly.”
The science is clear, meditation literally changes the brain, so for businesses who have heavily invested in their talent, it makes good business sense to have them operating at optimal levels, ultimately having a profound impact on the business, its culture and crucially, the bottom line.
Vedic Meditation is, quite simply, the Ferrari of meditation techniques - all techniques of meditation will get you there eventually, but Vedic Meditation produces profound effects at an accelerated rate, combined with an effortless, comfortable ride. With the regular practice of Vedic Meditation, meditators report that they find themselves naturally being more mindful, alert and aware in daily life, without the concerted effort this often requires in lieu of such a practice working to systematically awaken the brain's potential and release the stress that is preventing us from experiencing this as our natural state. In addition, upon completion of the course - taught over 4 x 90 minute sessions - your team will master the technique with the ability to practice on their own - be at it home, on a plane, in the office or while waiting in an airport - with no need for regular classes or the attendance of a teacher in your offices ever again. A one-time investment in your team and your business will start paying dividends almost immediately, the benefits of which will only continue to grow over the long-term.
Meditation is the cornerstone of any corporate wellness or leadership development program. Not only will employees be happier and healthier, but through awakening their greatest creative and mental potential, it could just be what gives your business and your Executive team the edge under competitive, dynamic and demanding market conditions.
