Mirabai Bush – Mindfulness from India to Google - Growing at Work | When People Grow Organizations Thrive

Mirabai found herself moving from working on her Ph.D. in a very tumultuous university environment in the midst of the political unrest in the late 19060s. In a search to find another way of being Mirabai began her journey around the world. She began in Europe and started working her way East across the country traveling by land across the Middle East, through the mountains of a very peaceful Afghanistan and Pakistan and eventually found her way to India. She didn’t have a desire to learn meditation, but when she got to India there was a ten-day meditation instruction being offered to westerners for the first time by a Burmese teacher. Having never crossed her legs and meditated this was a very new experience for her. The first three days was just focused on cultivating a one pointed attention, and from there they were then able to begin learning how to direct her attention towards a specified path. Mirabai ended up taking 3-4 more courses in a row. She thought she would stay for t...

Rina Deshpande – Reflections From Plum Village, A Journey Into Mindfulness and Self-Compassion - Growing at Work | When People Grow Organizations Thrive

Rina has been following Thich Nhat Hanh’s work for quite a while. Shortly prior to the recording of this podcast Rina traveled to Plum Village for a mindfulness and meditation experience lasting a couple weeks. See the link below. The experience was a combination of seated meditation, walking mindfully, eating mindfully, and work meditation. Early in Rina’s experience, she was challenged with walking mindfully. She was asked to walk through the French countryside and focus on the mechanics of her walking, focusing on how her foot touched the ground, feeling the heel, the side of her foot, and the bend of her toes. As a New Yorker, Rina described wanting to get where she was going, but as she worked through this experience, she began to both see the benefits of it and enjoy experiencing the sensations of it. She was forced to confront her desires in the moment, the rush to squeeze every bit from the experience. She described this feeling as a stressor through her time working on a ...
