This blog is the final chapter in Jain’s book Meditation: The Incredible Gateway to an Abundant Life, to be released November, 2017. This is a fast-track workbook for connecting with your True Self — a state of deep inner peace. While meditation is the core practice, it also includes mindfulness practices, and exercises on how to shift difficult emotional states and limiting imprints, plus a chapter on other ways of inducing a meditative state, including the Gong.
It often surprises me when I see someone suffering from an emotional issue and make no effort to do anything about it. They suffer and live with their discomfort, and are often down or critical of themselves around other aspects of their lives as well. In an office environment unresolved emotions lead to tension at work, reduced productivity, and not feeling good about one’s work life.
As a singer and musician I have always been interested in how music and sound affect mood, altered states and healing. Last year I began attending and researching gong sound meditation sessions in London, Los Angeles and Vancouver because of the way I felt during and after the sessions.
Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming more prevalent in the corporate world simply because they have proven to significantly combat stress and enhance individual well-being and productivity.
