August 28: UC San Diego Offers Kelee Meditation

The Rady School of Management Center for Executive Development offers customized Kelee Meditation courses.  Kelee meditation can help business leaders become more inspiring and effective for the people who work for them.  In Kelee meditation, you will learn about compartments which are, for example, your emotional buttons, baggage or issues.  These exist as negative repeating thoughts in your head or negative emotional feelings that well up from within you.  Detaching from your compartments during Kelee meditation allows for the compartments to begin to dissipate.  As you release individual compartments, you begin to free your mind from tension and stress and become less distracted and more present in the moment.

Visit The Rady School of Management for more information.
