I recently happened upon a link to a study in Japan that sought to prove an hypothesis – that just a few minutes of meditation prior to a learning exercise can significantly and positively improve the results.
It turns out that the results were quite astonishing. Here is the article from Successful Meetings online magazine that documents some of those results.
As a former meditation instructor who happens to now be a full-time speaker who is responsible for the ROI of meetings, I was indeed curious.
Evidently, others were too. My friend Jenise Fryatt, the Community Manager at Engage365, suggested I write an article to show others how meditation could be used to improve the outcome of meetings and events. So I did.
First, I reached out to James Kent at the Kyoto Convention Bureau to learn more about the study. Then I applied my experience as a meditation instructor to show how this could work for meetings – or any other event for that matter – including your next project.
