In Silicon Valley, Meditation Is No Fad. It Could Make Your Career | WIRED | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Meditation and mindfulness are the new rage in Silicon Valley. And it's not just about inner peace—it's about getting ahead.

Via Anita, Luciana Viter
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Meditation and mindfulness are about letting go. It is about finding a path without knowing what you are looking for.

What would you do with greater focus, determination, and resilience?

Eric Frykman's curator insight, January 29, 2015 4:02 PM

This being silicon valley, I have to wonder how long it will take for meditation performance reviews and "meditation hacking" companies to spring up.

 

It's a good read, though. If it's too long, it can be summarized as "Take some time every day to space out. It's good for you."

Mind Over Medicine: The Awesome Power Of The Mind To Heal The Body!

Mind Over Medicine: The Awesome Power Of The Mind To Heal The Body! | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it


As Harris Dienststfrey wrote in his essay in Consciousness & Healing, “I hope this is clear. There is as yet no bottom to the well of the mind’s capacity to do in the body (some bodies) what any newly invented drug can do. The problem the drug is treating does not matter. The mind is expansive enough to treat the problem. Put it this way: The mind so far can do (for some people) what all the pharmaceutical labs of the world together haven’t been able to do.”

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

 

The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga

 

Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I like the ideas that mindfulness is combined with Peter Drucker's work and that large companies are looking at meditation as something that will benefit employees.

You're welcome. Sorry about the delay in replying.
Jem Muldoon's curator insight, February 15, 2013 4:15 PM

When top business schools highlight the importance of mindfulness with courses for future leaders, we now have precedence for including it in educational leadership training.
