Meditation for Busy People

Morning workshop, July 11


Meditation brings numerous short- and long-term benefits. For those short on time and high on stress, the workshop offers easy and quick ways to:
-       - make important decisions with full focus
-       - release stress and increase calmness
-       - clear your head for crucial tasks that need your full attention
-       - stay calm even in the midst of a stressful situation. 

      You will learn different ways to meditate so that you can see what works best for you. You can then choose one or more short, easy and effective practices that you can do on your own after the workshop on a regular basis. While occasional meditation will help you release stress and bring calmness to your day, regular practice will make you a calmer, more peaceful and happier person – for life. The workshop facilitator will help you draw up a simple plan for a regular home practice so that you can begin your transformation.

The workshop is completely non-religious.

Date: Saturday, July 11
Time: 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Venue: The Terataii Centre, 04-03C Sime Darby Centre, 896 Dunearn Road, S 589472.
Cost: $150

A Talk on Effective Communication with Children

A talk for a group of mothers on the basic principles of good communication as applied to the family. A very engaged audience, with lots of relevant questions and useful comments.



Meditation: Self-Awareness, Empathy, Memory


A new study appears to back up what we already knew: meditation increases self-awareness and
empathy, improves memory, and reduces stress. The study by Harvard-affiliated researches shows that only 8 weeks of meditation can bring about changes in the parts of the brain associated with these attributes.


Reports the Harvard Gazette:

Participating in an eight-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress. In a study that will appear in the Jan. 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, a team led by Harvard-affiliated researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) reported the results of their study, the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain’s gray matter.

2 TALKS: on MEDITATION, and CHANGE MANAGEMENT

  I thoroughly enjoyed talking to two groups of thoroughly engaged professionals in April and May.

On 13 May, I talked to about 35 staff of the Singapore Institute of Management. It was a lot of fun because the audience was so obviously interested and engaged. We even tried two short meditations together, yes, even in that seemingly non-meditative conference room setting!

Very receptive staff, so open to new ideas. Only 2 of them had ever meditated before, but they got quite into our brief practices and listened attentively to the talk, asking a number of questions at the end.


On 30 April, I addressed journalists, sales, marketing and other staff at Thomson Reuters on Living Happily with Change. Once again, I was privileged to have a very engaged audience.

What a pleasure it is to share experiences and learning with people who are open and receptive!
