Manly Men Meditate

· 134 words · about a minute

In the cool light of Alaska’s sunrise, among steel skeletons of the Ketchikan Shipyard, industrial workers find wisdom and peace through meditation.

The Seattle-based shipbuilder, Vigor Alaska, introduced morning meditation practices at its facilities as a component of a “whole human model” approach to employee development. According to a recent article appearing in The Guardian, the Vigor employees using meditation “are not as stressed or frustrated, leaving them with more energy to put into family and free time.”

The legal profession, likewise, imposes stressors on the mind and body that rival those of the Vigor Alaska shipyard employees. Attorneys, too, can find wisdom and peace, increased energy and focus, with their own meditation practices. Creative CLE's course, Get Wise: Mindfulness for Attorneys, addresses this topic, and other mental health issues facing the legal profession.
