Meditation Fad in Sili Valley

Jonathan Toniolo (@toniolo) 8 years, 2 months ago

What do you guys think about companies using meditation techniques as a means to a more productive and efficient work staff? l have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m thinking great, companies are becoming more conscious, more sensitive to the human condition. Meditation is becoming mainstream. Yes. Awesome. On the other hand, I can’t help but think this is a tragedy. I think how diluted yoga has become over the past couple decades and see meditation going in the same direction. Meditation is going to lose a lot of its sacred characteristics in the coming years if its growing popularity is based on improving bottom-line quotas and increasing profit margins. “Meditation increases one’s emotional intelligence, and every company knows that if their people have EI, they’re gonna make a shitload of money.” -Meng. So at the moment I’m conflicted and would love to know what you all think.
