Meditation for Learning is Different


Meditations works, to what purpose? There are many different kinds of meditation. You probably know about mindfulness meditation. However, mindfulness training is not really the best for learning new ideas or being productive. After 6 weeks of light practice, it helps with conflict resolution and general stress reduction. Mindfulness doesn't appear to directly assist with intentional learning.

To learn there must be intention and focus. The more focus, the better the learning experience. Concentration supports focus. Stress increases concentration. This is exactly the opposite of mindfulness. My approach is to help learners find their personal balance between mindfulness and concentration. Unfortunately, it takes longer than 6 weeks of light practice to see meaningful results. For those learners with mettle and perseverence, a lifetime of benefit is possible. I seek to make permanent changes to your learning behaviors.
