Meditation and work

Meditation can fully enter the world of work.
Indeed, 'Meditation is not an escape but a serene encounter with reality.'
Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist monk, spiritual leader, poet and writer reminds us of this.
Training in meditation means gradually developing a way of being, a constructive and altruistic attitude, which includes a mature ability to take care of oneself and to relate to others in an empathetic and balanced way.

Through the direct experience of the various meditative practices you will have the possibility of intuitively knowing the functioning of the mind. You will explore the relationship between physical sensations and emotions and you will cultivating attention and consciousness.
Scientific research in the field of neuroscience has been interested in studying the effects of meditation. On the basis of this research it is now possible to say that meditating allows greater control over the sensory system and allows you to choose what to focus your attention on. 
And which are the results? 
Meditation puts into the background what you don't want to hear, such as chronic pain. 
But also anything that doesn't belong in the now moment and is therefore not a useful distraction because it can be misleading.
Meditation also activates the development of constructive mental states such as concentrated calm, aware compassion, benevolence, equanimity. 
Meditation  can be the central pivot on which to turn the world of work to bring that balance and attention necessary to carry out the tasks well and profitably. 
One's duties in harmony with oneself, with others and with the surrounding environment.
