Being meditators and wanting to help, the organisation offers to teach a very simple and universal meditation technique that tackles this problem. Mr Meditate launched in San Francisco, California, one of the world’s most progressive and forward thinking cities.
More than ever before, mental health has become of growing concern in society and the workplace. There is stress from all sorts of pressures and we build a whole culture around hiding from it, pretending it is not there, and distracting ourselves with goals, projects and concerns about status.
We get stuck in the ‘if only’ syndrome. If I had more money, then I would be happy. If only I could find someone who really loved me; if only I could lose 20 kilos and on and on forever. What meditation helps to discover is that we are already happy and we just need to slow down to realise it. Traditional psychotherapy and prescription pills are one of the best known recourses for people to resort to.
