Presentation: Meditation for Developers


Day of week:

11:30am - 12:20pm

Meditation is often viewed as the province of those looking for mystical enlightenment, but in recent years, companies like Google have started offering internal classes on meditation. Facebook, Twitter, eBay and other tech-oriented companies participate in the Wisdom 2.0 conference, where executives from these companies mix it up with yoga teachers and experts in meditation practices. Neuroscientists are studying the long-term effects meditation has on brain structure and how the practice of meditation can reduce stress, improve focus and productivity, and increase overall well being and happiness.

In this session, participants will learn basic meditation techniques, why there is a surge in interest in meditation practice among tech companies, the benefits of meditation - specifically for developers and technical people, as well as some pitfalls to avoid in adopting a meditation practice.
