“The pandemic is leading executives into less predictable situations, which they cannot address and solve through traditional business approaches, such as business modeling or setting customer acquisition and retention targets, alone,” Berlin said. “Restorative practices enable people to relax the body and regulate the emotions, increasing self-awareness and the capacity to connect.” Berlin is seeing more CEOs and executives not only seek meditation but openly speak about their experiences.”
