Mr. Meade shared his views on why meditation has gained such rapid traction in the financial sector, with many firms integrating meditation into its benefits program, and providing employees with meditation rooms. For example, Bridgewater Associates’ founder Ray Dalio, a billionaire asset manager, has been meditating for more than four decades and attributes the creativity he has developed from this technique as what makes his investment strategies unique. Transcendental Meditation uses a mantra, a secret phrase given to the meditator during training, to calm the mind and allow ideas to rise up from one’s subconscious.
