The Mindfulness Meditation Advantage:
Mention “meditation” and many picture bearded old guys sitting cross-legged and burning incense. In reality, most meditators are CEOs, athletes and others who get balanced, better sleep and less bent out of shape over everyday stressors from brief daily focus on a word or sound. This training teaches participants how to meditate for sharper concentration, recall, problem-solving, creativity and performance under pressure, which are all immensely powerful assets for meditators and their employers in an increasingly competitive and stressful world.
