Close Your Eyes and Open Your Mind: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Meditation

Close Your Eyes and Open Your Mind: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Meditation

Speaking Topics
  • The Value of Meditation for Companies

    According to a 2 year study by Aetna Health Insurance, their internal meditation program reduced stress and increased productivity and saved the company $5000 per participant per year.

    Stress, anxiety and distraction exact a huge personal and financial cost on individuals and organizations. Meditation is a proven way to reduce this cost. The problem is, many people find it hard to adopt a regular meditation practice. Over the last 40 years Dada has developed ways to make meditation more enjoyable and accessible for busy professionals.

    Imagine how your team and your company would benefit if they were less stressed, anxious and distracted?

  • Meditation: The Science and the Practice

    Meditation dates back more than 7000 years. But only recently has technology allowed us to objectively measure its effects. The results are remarkable. Outcomes range from increased creativity, better focus and peaceful sleep, to reduced blood pressure, improved brain health and greater longevity. Nobel Laureate, Dr Elizabeth Blackburn draws a connection between slowing aging and meditation practice. No wonder more than 80% of high achievers practice meditation.

    Learn how this ancient practice, now supported by a flood of research, can help transform your life and your work.

  • Meditation and Creativity: From Imagination to Innovation

    A 2010 IBM survey of more than 3,000 organizations identified creativity as the #1 quality they look for in future leaders.

    “I think a 99 times and get nothing. I float in silence, and the truth comes to me.” • Albert Einstein

    All innovation starts with an idea. Or more likely, 99 bad ideas, and one good one. Our best new ideas tend to arise when we are relaxed, at play, in the shower, walking in nature or even in a dream. When the mind is calm. Not so much when we are anxious or over-thinking a problem or up against a deadline. That's why the calming effect of meditation is so effective in inducing a creative 'flow state'.

    “Certain meditation techniques can promote creative thinking, even if you’ve never meditated before.” Leiden University study, 2012

    Learn how, with the right 'inside-out' approach, you can ignite your own creative spark and build a culture of innovation in your organization.

  • The Future of Intelligence

    We outsourced recalling phone numbers to our devices long ago. We are all effectively 'centaurs', letting 'thinking silicon' fly our planes, memorize law libraries, implement investment strategies, and read medical image scans. For routine mental tasks, silicon is just way better than carbon. Oh, and unlike us, it evolves exponentially. We've barely begun to see the disruption.

    "We're educating our children for a future that no longer exists." • Sohail Inayatullah • UNESCO chair for Future Studies.

    How can we prepare our minds, and those of the next generation, for this increasingly unpredictable future?

    How about we strengthen our uniquely human faculties. No machine has intuition, empathy, creativity, self-awareness or the ability to experience, well, anything. These so-called 'soft-skills' are fast becoming paramount. As luck would have it, that list almost exactly matches the list of outcomes from a regular meditation practice.

    “As more and more artificial intelligence is entering into the world, more and more emotional intelligence must enter into leadership.” – Amit Ray
