"Workplace Meditation" at the new office of NBC - Telemundo:

 

March 8: The NBC Universal - Telemundo enterprise have recently moved to a new 450,000 sqft facility in Miami which will serve as the global headquarters for all their Hispanic business.

 

They have a dedicated "Employee Experience" team who invited the BK Meditation Center to learn & discuss about possibility of facilitating meditation sessions for their employees. Their Co-ordinator Sandy Pinos-Chin shared that they value the importance of meditation for the wellbeing of employees and requested the meditation center for weekly meditation sessions and monthly enlightenment workshops.

 

Meeting was followed by a meditation session where few employees who have been attending meditation at NBC's earlier Coral Gables office also joined. The group reflected on the aspect of "newness" they experienced by moving to this beautiful big new office and also shared about how the new place also brings new challenges which in turn are more opportunities to bring more newness. It was beautiful to see how meditation offers new understanding and increases the thinking capacity to bring more & more newness. The session concluded with beautiful meditation guided by BK Veronica and all acknowledged the power created by this collective meditative awareness.

 

The BK Center is honored to associate and offer the meditation component to this new state-of-the-art broadcast center. This office is also their first prototype which will be adapted in NBC's new upcoming broadcast centers globally.

 

With a lot of excitement and enthusiasm, the weekly meditation sessions began from Mar 27.
