Om my, let's meditate on meetings

Or should that be meditate at meetings? According to this article, asking participants to meditate for 10 minutes before the meeting can result in more focused people and better outcomes. The research, conducted by the Kyoto Convention Bureau, may only pertain to meetings in Japan, where meditation is much more a part of the culture than in the U.S., but I bet if we could get more people to try it, we'd get similar results from taking a few minutes to clear our minds and focus our attention.
