TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
Simply Meditation in Business is an easy to practice system of techniques in meditation, breathing and relaxation. They are non-religious and focus on achieving 3 key objectives in a business: reducing lost working days due to illness, increasing productivity and improving decision making.
Simply Meditation in Business was first taught at the world-famous Hale Clinic in London, the world’s leading complimentary health centre, opened in 1988 by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
How does it work
When our negative habitual thoughts and the subconscious mind are transformed and the mind becomes calm, we can grow in creativity, positivity and confidence. This enhances our joy and love for life, making it a pillar of strength because what we love we will always do better in and more efficiently. Since love is much stronger than the mind, it can bring new focus to our goals, challenges and towards people. Problems become opportunities and that drives us to find solutions and be creative rather than stay stuck in the problem. We can now completely transform our daily activities, hence Simply Meditation in Business is considered to be “heartfulness” rather than “mindfulness”.
In addition, the breathing techniques of Simply Meditation in Business energise the body and change the way that we think and use our brain and emotions. The left and right hemispheres of the brain have very different activities, and this ability is now enhanced for analytical thinking and creativity.
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things – that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It’s a discipline; you have to practice it”.
– Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder

You are free to do them all together or space them out during your day. You can even pick your favourites and just focus on them – whatever works for you.
Using Guided Meditation
Training a student to meditate can be like challenging them to scale the summit of human experience – their mind, body, emotions, intellect, energy and consciousness. We have observed that when students are guided in their practice, their ascent is much smoother, enjoyable and experiential. They hit their goals much faster compared to other students and they in turn become an inspiration for others. That’s the point, to be able to lead by example. Change can happen in weeks and not years, taking a person to a whole new level of life experience.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
More productive and feeling empowered
Felt re-charged afterwards and as a result had better concentration, focus and clarity of mind. It was easier to prioritise, concentrate on work, multi-task and be more productive. I felt empowered to approach my workload without being distracted. The effects of the guided meditation lasted throughout the day and left an increased feeling of happiness.

Using meditation to deliver against 3 key objectives
Our company started their journey with meditation in 2018 during mental health awareness week. Our primary goal was to equip our employees with the tools required to deal with stress in an occasionally high-pressure environment and to reduce the number of days lost by the business due to stress. Albeit initially reluctant to attend, we managed to gently persuade our peers ‘to give it a try’. We were surprised how many attended and enjoyed the experience (even those you wouldn’t expect!). This success then led to monthly scheduled sessions and we began to see ‘regulars’. The benefits of these sessions felt by some colleagues included going back to work feeling more energised, productive and efficient. The idea of ‘switching off and recharging’ during the working day was beginning to show its benefits both in work and at the end of the working day with many attendees experiencing an improvement in their sleep patterns. Fast forward to 2020, a pandemic and the pressure to digitalise almost everything, we are now looking to take advantage of the virtual sessions, which provides clear deliverables against the main 3 objectives of improved mental health, productivity and decision-making. We are very much looking forward to improving ourselves and our meditation skills further.

Dramatic and quick results
Simply Meditation is different from anything else I’ve tried, and I have tried quite a lot. The results were dramatic and really quick. In 10 days, I was a different person. I was calmer and my relationships were much better, even with the difficult people in my life. Everything is so much richer; my whole experience of life is calmer, richer, and fuller.
