Mindfulness meditation has been practiced since the time of the historical Buddha. However, it’s not just for Buddhists anymore. It’s one of the fastest growing trends in contemporary American society, gaining traction within both the wellness and business communities. The reason?
The effectiveness of mindfulness meditation and practice has been cited in 100s of clinical and scientific research studies conducted over the past 30 years. These studies have shown mindfulness can:
- Reduce stress
- Improve athletic and job performance
- Sharpen focus and concentration
- Reduce both mistakes and accidents
- Improve outcomes for chronically ill patients
When practiced over the course of many years, mindfulness can literally rewire the brain.
Much like Zen in past decades, however, companies have rushed in to capitalize on the phenomenon. There are apps that promise instant results, gadgets to monitor and improve brain function, and Madison Avenue marketing targeted to demonstrate mindfulness is a cure for everything. Of course it’s not.
I have practiced mindfulness for more than 30 years and taught mindfulness with my life and career clients form more than 10 years. Now I am offering it as a separate program to companies and individuals alike. I teach the science of mindfulness and stress that it is not a panacea but rather a way of being that, when practiced diligently, will improve physical and mental health, enhance performance expectations, and allow practitioners to experience greater intimacy in their lives.
