Called Cyber Physiology, the science of mind/body communication comprises many well-documented methods of self-regulation.

The practice of meditation cannot, should not, and will not interfere with - nor complicate - your current beliefs. The reason is simple: mediation is not about believing anything. It's simply a practice. It's a practice of just being. (It's not about believing or even thinking, really...as you'll soon find out in this book.) Most of our life is such that it only involves the 'human' part of who we are.

In Mindful Leadership, you'll learn how to draw on those inner reserves through Mindfulness Meditation, a tool you can use to achieve focus and clarity, reduce stress, and develop the presence of mind to meet any number of challenges.
