By Peter Ng and Laurence Freeman
This book comprises four presentations to business executives and others proposing meditation as a way of cultivating enlightened leadership. Peter Ng describes meditation as the work of paying attention. It is a practice of ‘selfless attention’ where the attention shifts from the ego to other-centredness. This detachment from the ego enables a clearer perception of reality and enriches work and relationships. The enlightened leader comes to view leader-ship as not about oneself but the common good, as the acceptance of responsibility and not the exercise of power.
Peter Ng speaks with the authority and clarity born of personal experience. He argues for meditation as the antidote for our busy stressful lives. He gives simple, practical instructions on how to meditate, and how to persevere in the discipline.
