15-13 Story 2: Mindful Work: Meditation and Business


Synopsis: We’re always hearing about how everyone is stressed these days, that we have too much to do and too many people asking for a moment – or more! – of our time. What can we do to keep our bosses happy, our clients needs fulfilled and ourselves from pulling out our hair? We talk to two men who have found that meditating can help workers become more productive, less stressed and happier overall.

Host: Marty Peterson. Guests: David Gelles, business reporter, NYTimes, author of “Mindful Work: How meditation is changing business from the inside out.” Allan Lokos, founding and guiding teacher of the Community Meditation Center in NYC, author of “Through the Flames: Overcoming disaster through compassion, patience and determination.”
