The Word Kelee

Kelee is a word to describe an energy field that is within everyone. Understanding the reference points within this energy field, the Kelee can help you find it and guide you through Kelee meditation.

How can Kelee meditation help business leaders?

A true leader inspires workers to do their best.

A true leader is able to help everyone work together as a team.

A team is productive when people get along and work towards the same goal.

One team member’s personal problems can affect the whole team.

Also, a true leader, that is undistracted and can focus on the present moment, helps the whole team to do the same.

Kelee meditation teaches one-pointed stillness of mind.

When one practices one-pointed stillness over a period of time you begin to learn the art of detachment. Detaching to one still point allows one to drop into the calmness of the mind. You are also detaching from your compartments, the things that bother you.

In Kelee meditation, you will learn about compartments, which are, for example, your emotional buttons, baggage, or issues. These exist as negative repeating thoughts in your head or negative emotional feelings that well up from within you. Detaching from your compartments during Kelee meditation allows for the compartments to begin to dissipate. As you release individual compartments you begin to free your mind from tension and stress, you become less distracted and more present in the moment.

When you are less distracted and more present in the moment you are able to see more clearly how others are getting along and spot problems and resolve them more quickly. Additionally, as you begin to dissipate your distracting negative repeating thoughts in your head you begin to see everything more clearly and calmly.

Kelee meditation can help business leaders become more inspiring and effective for the people that work for them.

  • Become more inspiring and effective for the people that work for you.
  • Improve your ability to detach from distractions and work more efficiently.
  • Experience the 5-minute Kelee meditation with small group break-outs.
  • Expand your understanding of the difference between the brain and the mind.
  • Understand what compartments are and how they affect the business environment.
