Implementation in your company
From our experience we can recommend the following implementation roadmap for #meditation4business.
The steps are of course flexible and adaptable to your company and its challenges.
Which techniques do we use?
Many associate meditation with silent sitting in “zazen”, the traditional cross-legged sitting posture. But meditation is much more than that. There are many different meditation techniques. According to our experience, especially “active” meditations* are the fastest and most effective way to get deep into silence and observation. Active techniques include a variety of phases of physical activity combined with phases of stillness and silence. We combine active meditations* with various mindfulness techniques and short meditations for everyday life. In secularized form, free of religious and dogmatic burden, the techniques unfold their full potential especially in today’s world.
For us meditation is not a dry exercise, but pure joy. We love to meditate and thus share the joy of meditation. In the context of our events, workshops and programmes we only share meditation techniques that we have experienced for and on ourselves.
The core of meditation and meditation-related exercises is observation.
Through the different meditation techniques we train our ability to observe. Thus we get a distance to our own thoughts and feelings, to our mind. The mind can relax. Just as a muscle needs rest so that it can grow. The next time we need the mind again, it is much fresher. Life requires a lot of creativity and when our mind is under constant strain, it is too tired to function when we really need it. A calm mind can help to use creativity. It does this because it creates space for the soul to take over its “master role” – soulmastery!
After each of our workshops, participants receive detailed tips, practices and exercises to integrate meditation into their daily work. Meditation should not be considered separately from everyday working life, but integrates itself perfectly into everyday working life. We have made the experience and still make it every day on ourselves that “work as meditation” provides incredible added value.
