Corporate world embraces Mindfulness Meditation as benefits lead to better bottom line

    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Stress levels in the workplace are rising to new
heights and multi-tasking has reached epic proportions - but for executives
wanting better results, the answer lies in an ancient technique called
Mindfulness Meditation.
    That's the recommendation offered by Maria Gonzalez, President, Argonauta
Strategic Alliances Consulting Inc., and a frequent keynote speaker on 'How to
Create a Healthy Organization'. Ms. Gonzalez has taught Mindfulness Meditation
for six years. This year, however, "it's like a tap has just been opened" as
more executives turn to her for coaching on how to incorporate Mindfulness
into their daily lives.
    "That's because Mindfulness Meditation creates greater focus and
concentration, improves time management and enhances team effectiveness,"
Ms. Gonzalez explained.
    Ms. Gonzalez conducts workshops and retreats and travels throughout North
America coaching business leaders on Mindfulness Meditation. This technique
increases the ability to correctly gauge complex facial and body expressions -
and this heightened awareness can help executives when forming alliances,
negotiating deals, motivating team members and building interpersonal
    "By teaching Mindfulness Meditation to company leaders, the entire
organization is positively impacted," she said.
    "Argonauta Consulting has benefited greatly because Mindfulness is the
way in which I do business, from developing business strategy for companies,
creating alliances, negotiating deals and assessing organizational
governance," she added.
    Additional benefits of Mindfulness Meditation include: an enhanced
ability to anticipate and serve client needs; greater innovation and
inspiration; and greater productivity.

    Mindfulness Meditation helps individuals develop:
    - Concentration enhancing productivity
    - The ability to perceive situations clearly

      efficiency and effectiveness
