Can meditation in the workplace work? I certainly think so, and I am not the only one. Actually I am really surprised that out of my working life, not one organization has introduced it. Having worked in the disability field for over 15 years, there was never one meditation/relaxation program that I can remember attending. And yet the job of working with people with varying mental illness and disabilities can be quite stressful on staff to say the least.
Why has meditation been overlooked? Just simply overlooked (because it could be such a simple way to alleviate stress for all involved – in and out of the employment sector.) It seems organizations can put in place ways to deal with problems ONCE they happen, but there are not enough preventative measures to stop these ‘fall-outs’ from even beginning to take place.
Another reason it may have been overlooked is that employers have underestimated the value of meditation. It’s possible that ten minutes a day of meditation may change production levels to massive highs over time and reduce sick days. Initially, the employer may just be looking at the cost of losing ten minutes in production time from every employee. And yes I am sure that could equate to a lot of time – however, what if the benefits of the meditation far outweighed the loss of time?
It’s time to begin people. If you operate a work place, introduce it to all of your employees. They may just end up looking forward to that break each and every day. It may be their only peace that they get both in and out of the work environment. Begin to monitor team morale, sick leave, and production levels and I have a feeling your will find there will be much more gain in all areas then any loss!
I have created a CD called “The Ripple Effect” that has quick 10 minute brainwave meditation tracks on it. You can get it here: The Ripple Effect.
So How does this CD work?
This CD has 4 supercharged relaxation brainwave entrainment audio tracks on it that use Isochronic tones and Binaural Beats to send your body and mind quickly and easily into a relaxed state of mind. Just slip on your headphones, push play button and let this CD do its work to adjust your neural patterns in your mind.
We created this with you AND your work colleagues in mind – so you can create a ripple effect of peace and calmness within your organisation – just by being more of who you truly are. A calm and centred professional who actually can hold it all together. Your colleagues will be that surprised they may even want to try it themselves. I hope you will share it with them.
Here’s what the CD consists of:
10 minute Stress Relief
This is a short 10 Hz relaxation session, ideal for stress relief or as a quick break from daily worries. White noise is heard over the tones to create a gentle over wash sound.
This session also uses a technique called Dissociation which is particularly useful for people who are restless and have trouble relaxing. Headphones are required. Uses LEFT and RIGHT Isochronic Tones
10 minutes at the beach
This is another short 10 Hz relaxation session, ideal for stress relief or as a quick break from daily worries. Take yourself to the ocean shore and listen as the sea gulls fly overhead. The waves themselves will bring you down to a centred state of mind, whilst the binaural beats relax you and ease your tensions within your body.
15 minute vacation from worries
Got a few minutes more? This track may be the one for you.
A short alpha relaxation session, ideal as a 15 minute vacation from daily worries.
Using wind chimes and left and right Isochronic tones, this is a short 10 Hz Alpha relaxation session, ideal as a 15 minute vacation from your daily worries and stressors at work.
This session also uses a protocol which alternates stimulation between the left and right ears and eyes, which is particularly useful for people who are hyperactive. This one will really do the job for you!
25 minute Day Dream Meditation
OK, so you have had a MAJOR meltdown and you feel like you are past the point of no return… there is no way out! Well, so you have previously thought. Now with this 25 minute supercharged binaural beat 10 Hz session, you can come out the other side of the blackness well centred and ready to jump straight back into work again – but this time with a much clearer, focussed body, mind and spirit.
This is a 10 Hz Alpha session, called “Daydream Meditation” because the session approximates the state of mind people are in when deeply involved in a daydream. (A musical string background comes and goes with floating dream like ambiance). Note that this session uses binaural beats so headphones are required for maximum results. This track will really take you into an altered state of consciousness for 25 minutes and bring you back out again – ready to turn your organisation into a fully CALM and COOL organised working environment.
