"Meditation programs, and in particular mindfulness programs, reduce multiple negative dimensions of psychological stress."

BUT ... "As promising as mindfulness and other meditation systems may be, a common complaint is the time, patience, and discipline required to learn meditation ... Thus, a form of relaxation and stress relief that does not require a steep learning curve, or a great deal of discipline to utilize, could potentially be a huge benefit to human wellness and health."

... and this is why Sound-Guided Meditation is so attractive.
Sound Therapy uses natural and traditional sounds to help participants to achieve a meditative state without the rigor of traditional techniques.
After several years working with groups ranging from 6 to 30 persons, I can say with confidence that more than 95% of participants find it easy to achieve the "Meditative State" using our methods.
For a very modest investment, and with no major changes to your existing staff welfare program, We can provide a Sound Relaxation, Stress Relief or Stress Management Therapy program, tailored to your organisation's needs. We can work with groups of up to 30 persons, and can undertake multiple sessions per day if numbers exceed 30. These sessions can be arranged either in house, or at an alternative venue.
Whether it is a management away-day, a team building event, or a "thank you" to a successful team, we can integrate a deep relaxation session into the day's activities.
The most effective group size is 20 persons, and we can undertake multiple sessions per day if necessary.
Four half days of Meditation-Based Stress Management techniques including:
- the elements of mindfulness
- self-awareness and self-monitoring
- applying our model of experiential processing
- ending each day with a sound-guided meditation
60 - 90 minute sessions for groups up to 30 persons. The sessions are in three parts. An initial discussion and teaching about mindfulness, stress, self-awareness, self monitoring and experiental processing, followed by approx 45 min of sound-assisted meditation, and rounded off with a review of the session.
To be effective in the long-term, a program of between 6 and 13 weekly sessions is recommended.
For individuals with a specific issue, and who are in need of personal attention, We can provide individual therapy sessions. The duration is 60 - 90 minutes per session,
Each consultation is an introspective, reflective psychotherapy session which uses sound-guided meditation as a means of inducing a deeper perspective from which the client is able to review his/her issues. All sessions take place at one of our studios, by appointment
To be effective in the long-term, a minimum of four sessons are necessary, and this can be extended if required.

Google was lucky enough to have one of their original software developers spearhead a program at Google that began in 2007 called, “Search Inside Yourself.” Google offers an on-site meditation space and meditation courses, believing that meditation can help improve not only employee mental health and well-being, but also the company’s bottom line.
Steve Jobs took a practice that worked for him and shared it with Apple’s corporate culture. He was considered a pioneer of “mind technology” when he introduced Zen mindfulness meditation to the corporate structure at Apple. Workers have access to a meditation room, 30-minute daily meditation breaks, and on-site yoga and meditation classes, which were all part of a process that Steve used to reduce his own stress, gain more clarity, and enhance his creativity.
Yahoo offers meditation rooms and free meditation classes for employees to benefit from and reduce stress while at work. It seems that tech companies like Yahoo are the early adopters of the mindful meditation at work culture with magazines like Fast Company touting meditation as a “must-do” to get hired.
