Is meditation the key to fostering a happier, more productive workplace? New York Times reporter David Gelles investigates this claim and compares notes with a neuroscientist who specializes in the effect of meditation on the brain, Christopher Moore. A book signing for David Gelles’ Mindful Work: How Meditation Is Changing Business from the Inside Out follows the program.
