A great number of people in a managerial capacity suffer under the stress of their career ambitions and the tension in their personal development. The pivotal question that frequently arises is: how do I find the balance between that business stress and the need for peace and personal depth in my own life. It has been scientifically proven that Zen has a stimulating effect on the quest for this balance. Many of those in management – particularly those over forty - do not think solely about their business preoccupations, but increasingly about the direction of and relationship with their immediate environment. At times Zen may appear difficult to fathom, but in reality it turns out to be a simple and stimulating source for enhancing the quality of work and invigorating the personal environment. And this instrument is within reach of all of us . Effects of Zen training include: more energy, improved power of concentration, increasing clarity of thought, more patience and - equally important - a better resistance to stress.
