Scranton, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2013
In an attempt to teach children how to live peacefully and forge a better future, Meditation Master Peter Amato has announced he will bring a meditation program to five deserving schools throughout the country, a $ 250,000 value in training and materials. At absolutely no cost to the schools.
By making meditation a regular part of the school day, Amato said, young children and teens will be given the tools to reduce stress in their lives, and cope with competition, peer pressure, bullying and the violence all around them. Key research findings in pilot and current school meditation programs included increases in calm in the classroom, increased attentiveness, increase in a desire to learn along with a strong retention span, and an increase in morale and socialization. Overall, teachers saw a sizeable increase in emotional balance with less behavioral issues and acting out.
Amato launched a nationwide search for five schools that are interested in starting a meditation program and want to compete to receive the program training free. He is also seeking interested schools to participate on their own as well as individuals, businesses and major corporations to sponsor the program in their communities. The contest ends September 30, 2013. Five winners will be selected by an appointed committee from all eligible entries during the month of October 2013. However, interested schools and sponsors may sign up at any time before or after the contest ends.
To enter the competition, students, teachers, parents or administrators must submit a 200-word essay or three-minute video, in the most creative way possible, on why they deserve to be selected. This can easily be done at Amatos website http://pathwaytopeace.org/ . The site also offers the capability to become a sponsor or be partnered with a sponsor.
This is certainly not a one-person project, Amato admits, and government funding is not available. So he is challenging private enterprise to join in and sponsor a school so teachers can be trained to give children a proven tool to help shift the future. The goal, and the hope, is to have this collaboration become infectious, spreading throughout communities and corporate America so that students from every school in the country, whether public or private, inner city or rural, have the opportunity to benefit from meditative practices.
Amato knows the program is effective as proven in a multi-year pilot program he developed and implemented under a U.S. Department of Education grant in the Scranton (Pennsylvania) School District. He developed a qualitative research methodology to measure the attributes and benefits of the program. A qualitative case study methodology was then added to develop a mixed method research approach.
Are you willing to accept the challenge? The benefits reach everyone, so sign up now to enter the competition or to get help in getting started at http://pathwaytopeace.org/ .
Peter Amato is a trailblazer who possesses the innate ability to anticipate new paradigms in a changing marketplace, leading him to become a founding partner in several national businesses. Inspired by personal growth and the realization for the need for a higher standard within healthcare, he established the Inner Harmony Wellness Center and the Center for Integrative Medicine which is recognized as one of the first and foremost authentic centers for integrative medicine in the nation. A meditation and yoga master, with certifications from Deepak Chopra, MD Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. and Yogi Amrit Desai, Peter was the first to introduce a Meditation in School program and publish the results. Peter is the author of the book Soul Silence which explores ones relationship to prayer and meditation, as well as numerous articles on mindfulness. He is currently pursuing his doctorate in mind-body medicine at Saybrook University. A student of many global healing systems, Peter is an in-demand speaker who has motivated audiences across the world.

Digital Media Training created the eBook, 10 Questions to Consider Before Investing in Sales Training, for those who believe training is the key to continuous company achievement, personal development, and sales success.
In this eBook, we will take a close look at the questions and considerations to have during the decision-making process of investing in sales training. This book was written for those who are looking for a higher level overview of what to consider before investing in sales training. An emphasis is placed on the importance of due diligence before conducting training and more than simply focusing on the workshop agenda or the amount of small group activities. This eBook is for those seeking both the 10,000 foot view as well as a closer look into the details to be considered in building and growing successful training programs and winning sales teams. Digital Media Training wants to help companies make the most informed decision.
Digital Media Trainings CEO and subject matter expert, Steve Bookbinder, says: There is no substitute for training, especially sales training. As long as sales goals continue to rise and the competition continues to exist, there will always be a need for new-hires to get up to speed more quickly and for legacy sellers to sharpen already existing skills. However, unlike sports training, which is generally imposed on the athlete who is obligated to embrace their training regimen, sellers dont always accept either the notion of training or the training dish they were served that day.
