Meditation: Life Enhancement Training
At Center | Change, we utilize the latest in neuroscience to teach meditation classes AND mindfulness techniques to improve employee satisfaction and productivity. Meditation is "in" because the benefits are crazily impressive, and now richly-documented by solid research. Intellectual powerhouses from The Mayo Clinic to Harvard University have confirmed these life improvements, which is why corporate wellness increasingly includes Mindfulness.
These are just a few of the companies benefiting from Mindfulness training: Google, Facebook, Ford, Genentech, Aetna, Intel, P&G, eBay, Nike, HBO, Twitter, Goldman Sachs, McKinsey & Co, General Mills, Apple, United Health Group, Deutsche Bank, Target, LinkedIn, The Chicago Bulls, Kaiser Permanente, The US Military, and over 20 law schools.
And here are some of the benefits they report from adding Mindfulness to their Corporate Wellness programs:
Workplace stress costs employers $500 billion annually. Absenteeism, health care costs, and accidents go down among mindfully trained employees.
Mindfulness yields higher productivity among employees. One company gained a $3,000 upgrade in productivity per mindfully-trained employee.
Sales teams trained in mindfulness are more effective. And meditators are seen as having more “charisma.”
Mindfulness saves money. Improved health due to mindfulness training resulted in $2,000 lower healthcare costs among meditating employees.
Mindfulness programs create goodwill, competitive advantage, and a better reputation. Employees increasingly value more balance, and seek improved work environments.
Satisfied employees are easier to retain (replacing an employee is estimated to cost 20-50% of their annual salary).
It’s not about changing who we are, but changing how we think, from our mindful center. It’s the basic idea behind Center|Change.

"Already Here is a passionately-considered and beautifully-presented work on staking your claim to joy and sanity in a world where so many are now convinced that the opposite must necessarily be the norm …There are those who may be inclined to describe Already Here: the matter of Love as an instant modern classic of its kind. They just might be right in that assessment." --Aberjhani
