The traditional culture of ZEN has been passed down through the generations in Japan. These days the concept has been adapted into the more familiar concept of mindfulness and is being widely adopted in to the lifestyles of people around the globe.
In recent years in particular, there is growing scientific evidence to indicate that ZEN (meditation) can relieve stress and boost concentration. Based on these findings, ZEN is taking root not just among individuals, but in the corporate management landscape as well with many leading firms in Europe and the United States implementing Zen programs as part of their benefits for employees.
With ZEN expected to further take off overseas, we believe there will be even more of a focus on evaluating one’s ZEN through feedback and scientifically measuring one’s level of meditation training.
