Meditation at Work is unique meditation program designed specifically for working professionals. Our science-based approach to meditation allows each participant to learn the essentials of meditation and then personalize the practice in a way that's meaningful and relevant to the student.

We teach five techniques that work well in the workplace: ambient sound meditation, walking meditation, gazing meditation, mindful breathing meditation, and mantra meditation . They are simple, effortless, and enjoyable to do.
1. Ambient Sound Meditation
Learn how to use the office sounds around you to mediate. This technique helps professionals welcome the flow the ambient noise around them.

Learn how to use the rhythm of the feet to meditate. This technique is great for professionals who are active and enjoy getting away from their desk from time-to-time.
3. Gazing Meditation

We promote safety first. Meditation is generally considered to be safe for healthy people. We advocate for healthy meditation practice, and help students understand what makes good meditation practice and what may require additional support and guidance.
We meet you where you are on your journey. Our program promotes inclusion by respecting the values and beliefs of students from all walks of life. There are no philosophies or beliefs in our program--just a framework based on the latest scientific research. However, we do acknowledge and admire the rich heritage and history of meditation and the cultures and philosophies that have shaped its development for over a millennia. And, it is for this reason we encourage each student to personalize this framework to align with their own values and beliefs.
We treasure the human experience. Technology has changed the way we live and interact with others, and much of this innovation serves the common good--including this very program. However, technology has also fostered a sense of instant gratification that is now expected in almost all domains of life. Meditation has always been and will also be a deeply personal experience that takes us on a journey inward--you have everything you need to meditate--you.
We like to start the workday with group meditation. You spend at least a third of your day on the job, and this presents a wonderful opportunity to incorporate meditation in your workday habits--especially at the start of your day. We also think you're likely to stick with it when you can join like-minded professionals focused on making work better. A sense of community creates engagement and promotes a healthy work environment.
We are focused on the needs of working professionals. Work stress is often cited as the leading cause of stress among professionals. Over time, this can affect performance, health, work-life balance, and overall happiness. We believe if we can work better, you'll live better--our entire program is designed for working professionals and the companies who support them.
