Mindfulness & Creativity

“Creativity was selected as the most crucial factor for future success in business.” – IBM 2010 Global CEO Study

“Certain meditation techniques can promote creative thinking, even if you have never meditated before.” – Leiden University Study, 2012.

Mindfulness and Meditation are proven methods for opening the inner door to creativity, but it doesn’t stop there. Thousands of studies from institutions like Harvard, MIT and Stanford universities confirm that Meditation practice:

  • Reduces anxiety
  • Boosts immunity
  • Improves mood
  • Develops emotional intelligence

This is why 25% of US companies sponsor mindfulness or meditation programs on campus. But a major problem with many corporate mindfulness programs is that participants find meditation difficult and don’t continue their practice.

What makes The Monk Dude’s program more engaging and effective is:

  • Depth of experience. As a yoga monk, Dada has studied with the best in India and taught meditation for nearly 40 years.
  • Music. The right music can take your meditation from feeling like homework to feeling like an adventure.
  • Creativity Training to help talented professionals use meditation to enhance their mental performance and develop an innovative mindset.

So if you want to become more calm, confident, creative, and connected, talk to us.
