I've been meditating a bit for a decade and half now. However, I've been searching for a nice Yoga school to also improve myself in it. Recently, I thought that I had found one by visiting its web-site. I went to its class in a nearby top hospital where it's conducted, however, their evening timing was incorrect since I found out there that classes are only held during mornings. I thought that this was general administration's fault which seems to be with several things in India and not of the specialist yoga teachers themselves. However, there was very high amount of pollution on the way and so I decided to not go there including in the mornings because by when the class would've gotten over, the traffic would've increased much and that which would've also kept me in that very high pollution that much longer. If you're concerned about pollution then I welcome you to also read and share http://www.healthfitnessindia.com/profiles/blogs/anti-pollution-mas... 

I just read "At Shell, a Grassroots Effort Aims to Nourish Innovation Via Meditation" http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article.cfm?articleid=3063 and that felt being a part of a great world and that humans are still pursuing greatness including for our world: 

-----

Knowledge@Wharton: Recently, we published a series of articles on a meditation program at Google, called "Search Inside Yourself," which makes an explicit connection between mindfulness, meditation practice and emotional intelligence. I wonder whether at Shell you view it in a similar light and if so, what implications that might have for the way your program is built?

Mandar Apte: Yes, there is definitely a link. From my perspective, the link is that we're all busy; we're all racing to solve challenges. As for innovation, you know, it's all about thinking of new things. One has to learn how to drop the old habits, the old ideas, the old concepts and it's like taking a pause from the business of today, a gap in your mind from the train of thoughts. That's what meditation allows you. It gives you tools and techniques to pause. And silence is the mother of creativity. So, if you can invoke that space of silence within yourself -- through any means -- it need not be through meditative practice -- it could be any other means that anybody chooses to adopt. That's the first step. The second step involves social processes and interpersonal skills. If you can invoke that quality of compassion or empathy in yourself, where you are not judging yourself, you're not criticizing yourself, nor are you judging somebody else, then I think there is a space for insights to be created. These qualities are crucial for grooming your own innovative skills and nourishing the innovation culture in an organization.

I would keep sharing valuable readings and experiences on meditation in the posts. I welcome you to read and share if you like.

Best,

Shakti
