Can meditation play a role in business? Can it be the secret to maintaining a proper work-life balance in today’s competitive marketplace? Can you find happiness at work regardless of what kind of work you do? This is the story of how a Fortune 500 human resources department transformed the lives of its employees by applying Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s ideas on leadership, engagement, career development, and meditation in business through a unique program called Project Bloom. Project Bloom provides a model for how employees can influence a business’ culture to make it become the kind of place where everyone enjoys working. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi from India, who not only teaches meditation to business leaders all across the world, but also runs a humanitarian relief operation in India that provides free medical care, schools for disadvantaged children, and conducts massive volunteer tree-planting efforts. Each individual can transform his or her own work-life to live a happier, healthier, and more balanced life by using a science and technology that has been made use of for thousands of years, especially in the eastern parts of the world. By transforming yourself, a seed is planted that blooms within you.

Must-read for any manager (and employee)
As a disclaimer, I did take an online-class taught by Sadhguru, and I did give me more balance and calmness in my life. However, I have not started my meditation or yoga practice yet. I came by this book while searching for “Sadhguru” on Amazon. The books is wonderful, and I read it very fast. It has so much wisdom of Sadhguru as well as practical application by the author. I honestly wish I worked for an organization that the author helped to change. At my job, there is no trust, no closeness ( though, it’s a great job overall).. I will try to work on some ideas from this book (ha, after I start meditating).
The message far exceeds the value from a single project

This book is not directly about meditation–but it is certainly about an important role for meditation. In essence, it is about transforming the work environment when meditation is practiced to help break old counterproductive behavior patterns (“reactive”, in particular) and replace them with highly liberating and more productive ones. The book sets forth a beginning to end transformative process via the author’s personal experience in his own work environment. Breaking old habits with the help of meditation is only half the story. Possibly the more important half is the guidance the book provides in the discovery of a new way to experience work activity. That guidance is provided in the author’s sharing of the form of yoga he has learned from his own guru. This yoga is not about bodily exercises. It is presented as “internal engineering”–much more a soft science than overtones of religion or philosophy. As the recounting of the experience unfolds it becomes clear that the success of Project Bloom in transforming the work environment could be viewed as real world feedback of the fact that personal lives of the employees had been improved.
You Can Bloom Too!

It was an honor to work with Kevin Wilson at the Fortune 500 company he outlines in his book, Project Bloom: A Yogi’s Wisdom for the Workplace. As a seasoned human resource executive, I seek the formula to bring the best of human performance, the best of people into the workplace. We conduct engagement surveys, build action plans and optimize recognition programs. Are these tools “the secret sauce” to high performing organizations or communities? As Kevin discovered more about himself through the meditation and teachings of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, he applied these at our workplace. Diversity, engagement, and team performance were no longer defined in traditional human resource terms as Project Bloom connected us at our inner core. Not intimidating – simply human. Everyone could teach, learn and give. I highly recommend Project Bloom and suggest you connect with Kevin Wilson at […]
An Inspiration Book on Three Levels.
I found this book to be an inspiration on the level of an idea, a concept that can and does work in the workplace, viz. a process whereby fellow workers can accelerate the rate at which they come to work together while also increasing their joy at work. On another level, I also found the many authentic quotes of the sayings and worldviews of Sadhguru to be extremely beneficial, as I have participated in one of his weekend reflection programs. In reading the quotes I could almost hear him speaking, as I remember his voice and laugh. I found the quotes to be so much the way he talks. Finally, for me,the book was a source of daily meditation for about the month I spent reading it. After reading a few chapters I saw the opportunity for reading about a chapter a day for my own daily reflections. Thus each day’s reading provided a jumping off point for my reflection of my own daily life. I highly recommend this book for any one or all three of these levels of inspiration.
Every manager must read this book!

I recently got promoted at work to Project Manager. I could not have had a better read than this to enter my new role with. Sadhguru’s words of wisdom about even the simplest aspects of management are eye-openers. Intertwining the interview with Sadhguru, and the application of his wisdom through Project Bloom, made for a very interesting reading experience. Thanks a ton to author Kevin!
One of the realistic story. Mahatma Gandhi achieved freedom to India – a great achievement. Sadguru helping humanity involving himself and following ‘inclusion’ in human well being. My great appreciation and applause to all who involved in this project along with Sadguru.
Loved the practicality of the book.
Really enjoyed learning how the author put to practice in real life under normal/dire circumstances the lessons of wisdom he learned from his Guru. Look forward to implementing several of the things mentioned in this book.

Great career advice packed with wisdom from a yogi. I enjoyed reading it. I searched and there are some videos of the yogi, Sadhguru, on You Tube talking on a zillion different topics.
