5: Mindfulness Training for Executives
Business executives will benefit most from a series of one-to-one sessions. You get personalized coaching that is 100% catered to the individual and their goals, whether that be anything from stress reduction to mindful leadership coaching.
6: 2 Week Course
Our 2-week Business Meditation Course offers a more in-depth course for companies that want their employees to get a firm grasp of the practice.
We start by covering the basics of the practice, which includes everything from posture to mindset. Then we cover the techniques that are most valuable in the workplace, those being Mindful Breathing for calmness, Body Scan for stress relief, Zazen for focus, and Loving Kindness for communication and team-building. Finally, we bring it all together in a final seminar that encourages employees to continue meditating and teaches them to incorporate the practice into their lives both at work and at home. It is the ultimate business meditation course.
We are also happy to be part of your corporate wellness retreat.

Overall a great guy and worth trying his lessons!”

I love this path, and as a result, I wanted to improve my meditation. Paul, however, has completely revolutionised my meditation practice. I no longer think of the claims that meditators make about this practice as hyperbole. I have learnt that there are a lot of poor meditation teachers, and a lot of misinformation. Go to Paul, now. Become a better, more empowered person.”

Features & Benefits
1: Our classes will revolutionize your workplace
There’s a reason why meditation is one of the top types of corporate wellness programs. Indeed, many prominent founders have discussed how mindfulness helped them to become successful. For instance, Steve Jobs, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner, and SalesForce’s Marc Benioff. And Fortune 500 companies like General Mills (New York), Comcast (Michigan), Procter & Gamble (Toronto), and Google (California) have started using corporate meditation programs.
No wonder. With our mindfulness classes, you will see why there are so many benefits of meditation for the workplace.
Paul says, “I’m always reading new scientific research. Every day I read about newly discovered benefits of mindfulness. But for me, it’s not surprising. We live such chaotic lives and take in so much mental noise. Is it any wonder that some quiet time helps?”
So many companies trust mindfulness meditation for the workplace
Your team will experience these benefits:
- Decreased turnover rates
- Increased innovation (Institute for Mindful Leadership Survey).
- Reduced stress
- Employees will feel more connected
- Increased emotional awareness (Tang et al., 2015
- Increased creativity (Arizona State University)
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved relationships (Singer 2016; Kok et al. 2013).
- Improved working memory and learning ( Harvard Medical School )
- Reduced sick days (Hulsheger et al., 2012).)
Here is a great overview of the benefits.
2: Improve employee performance
Researchers from Harvard Medical School in Boston discovered that mindfulness enhances activity in regions of the brain related to working memory and learning. This essentially means that when you book a business meditation program with us, your workforce will learn faster and improve their performance, all while reducing stress.
3: We make it easy
We understand that our customers and clients have unique situations and unique needs. That’s why we make it easy to work with us. Your employees can take our sessions together in the same room, remotely, any way you like. Sessions can be held on Zoom, Webex, Google Meet, or your preferred platform. We make it easy.
4: Enhanced creativity
We offer special sessions to enhance creativity. Research from Arizona State University and The Institute of Mindful Leadership in New Jersey shows that employee meditation training improves innovation. You’ll see the same thing when you hire our meditation teachers.
5: We build the solution with you
We are here at your convenience to answer your questions and to help you to build the perfect solution for your team. We offer free consultations to help you determine the best way to proceed. We can work onsite for those who want the direct approach, and we offer virtual mindfulness meditation classes for employees to join using their phones or computers.
6: Balanced emotions and increased EQ
Research by Richard Davidson, Ph.D., director of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, shows that mindfulness strengthens the emotional brain and improves EQ. In our sessions, we create emotional awareness that helps to promote healthier workplace relations and better staff morale.
7: Reduces those too-common problems with the mind
Meditation helps with many problems employees experience with the mind, according to numerous scientific studies, including one from Boston University. Our sessions feature a friendly and knowledgeable teacher who will help to soothe any troubles your employees might be experiencing.
8: Reduced stress
Stressed staff claim on average an additional $2000 per year in workers’ compensation claims compared to more relaxed employees. But our sessions will help to reduce stress and cut those costs.
Paul says, “I’ve come to learn that there will always be challenges in life. But (quoting Jon Kabat Zinn), It’s not about stopping the waves. It’s about learning how to surf.”
Just one of our sessions will improve your company culture for years
Our mindfulness classes for employees are the perfect way to increase the well-being of your workforce, reduce staff turnover, and cut health costs. Plus, we make it easy and comfortable – less intimidating than yoga and easy to fit into daily work life.
We’ve seen big benefits in our classes across NA, from Vancouver to Toronto to New York and San Francisco, and in industries ranging from government organizations to tech startups and more.
6-Steps For Launching Meditation Classes At The Workplace
When you book one of our sessions we will help you to launch the program and to introduce it to your employees. It’s our 6-step system for success.
- We explain exactly what meditation is
- We (or your own team) investigate the core stressors at your workplace
- We discuss the class with your designated wellness representative
- We help you quantify and measure your classes
- You experience your session with our qualified meditation teacher
- Together we gather feedback from your employees
1: What meditation is
This is the very first step of our work together! We want you to understand what meditation really is. Our business meditation sessions are an evidence-based way to reduce stress at work, improve productivity, and produce positive results in employees and the workplace. Although mindfulness itself has a spiritual background, stemming from Buddhism, corporate mindfulness is a secular, scientific approach to wellness at work.
2: We (or your own team) identify the core stressors in your workspace
Different workplaces are susceptible to different kinds of stress and also have different goals. In coworking spaces, for instance, there is often the stress of general busyness. And for nurses and doctors in the healthcare field, there is significant emotional stress.
We begin by analyzing the primary stressors and goals in your workplace. This informs us of how we should create your custom classes.
Paul says, “I have yet to find any single company that doesn’t have some obstacles in the way of wellness. But at the same time, I’ve never found such an obstacle that can’t be overcome. It all starts with recognizing what those stressors are.” In step 2, we identify those stressors.
3: We chat with your wellness rep
We recommend that you have a designated team or individual to monitor the well-being of your workforce. For a startup, this could be one single person. For a large government organization or corporation, it could be the Chief Health Officer along with their team. Before your employee meditation session, we will meet (usually virtually) with your wellness rep to discuss the session.
4: Your corporate meditation class
Now it’s time for our teacher to deliver the goods.
Here at THE DAILY MEDITATION, our qualified meditation instructors use language sensitive to the workplace, which includes making all communications secular. Plus, unlike many other service providers, who only focus on relaxation techniques, we teach a wide range of methods and will help you to select the best techniques for your team.
5: Together we quantify and measure the results
Together we will measure the results of your session. This will enable you to calculate the ROI of your onsite or virtual corporate meditation classes. One way we do this is with monthly health questionnaires. We can provide these for you.
6: Listen to feedback
We encourage you to open a dialogue with your team. The more your team is willing to discuss wellness, the healthier your team will be. This could be done over the phone if you’re a work-from-home company, in a chat over coffee if you’re a small start-up, or in a formal meeting.
