Chade-Meng Tan, creator of Google’s “Search Inside Yourself” course teaching meditation to more than 1,000 employees so far (with more than 400 on a waiting list) stopped by the New York Stock Exchange recently, joining CNBC’s Tyler Mathisen and Kenny Polcari, director of NYSE floor operations at O’Neil Securities, to offer some quick tips on de-stressing, CNBC reported.
Tan also wrote a New York Times bestselling book, “Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (And World Peace),” and the overall goal is to teach people how to manage their emotions for better mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
“The first thing it does, it enables you to calm your mind in a crisis,” Meng said in the report. “It creates a condition for knowledge and self-mastery. It also creates a condition for empathy and compassion. There are people who came to me that say they got promotions because they came to my class, people who say they feel a lot better physically mentally and emotionally and people whose marriage lives are improved.”
